Any but Merlot! My favourite cheapish one is JP Chenet. It comes in a wonky bottle

Oddly broad price range isn't it? I'm more into whisky and cognac nowadays and wouldn't want to spend over £30 on a red wine really. I'm more inclined towards champagne if going for that price range. What's the occasion?

Last red wine I bought for a present was £20 2000 California Rocking Horse Zinfandel. It was rather good, raspberry, strawberry, oak and spicey tastes, but a bit too strong for my approval at 14.5% or so though. I prefer Italian wines like Barolo and Valpolicella.

If it's for yourself why don't you go wine tasting and find out what you like? Better than asking on an internet forum most certainly, we all have our own tastes.

That's a bit out of my price range. I think spending over £3 is extravagant!

This is virtually impossible to answer. It rather depends what sort of wine you want: what's it for? what will it be served with? do you like light, medium, or full bodied wines? do you have a grape variety preference? what about age? alcohol content? fruitiness? composition?

I suggest you take a look at: http://www.superplonk.com/home/home.asp.

The best thing to do is go to a decent wine merchant, who specializes in better wines, and ask for recommendations, and perhaps to try some of the wines first.

can't got wrong with a nice chateauneuf du pape. if you're going to spend up to £65 and don't know too much about wine (i'm guessing), then there's not much point as it will be hard to appreicate the actual difference in quality. for £15 you should be able to get a very very good wine anyway. between £15 and £34 for a decent chateauneuf.
