CHEAP WINTER WINES
Winter is a time to indulge in bold wines. Flavors that seem heavy and overwhelming in warm weather, such as oak, rich spice, and jammy fruit, provide comfort on cold, snowy nights. Delicious wines for cold-weather sipping and good value include classics like pinot noir as well as more obscure varieties like saperavi. Since the availability and price of particular bottles varies greatly across the country, this list covers 10 styles of wine to look for in your local shop, with examples and their prices. These affordable wines, from velvety, full-bodied reds to rich, warming whites, will keep your glass half full and swirling for the rest of winter.
