Stuff that you can pick off the Supermarket shelf is generally mass produced and, whislt drinkable, nowhere near the value you should get for your money.Fortunately here in the UK I'm a member of an online wine site that sources the wines directly from the winemaker without having to go through the middle men that add to the price.My advice would be to try and find something similar in the US and just keep trying different grapes to see which is your preference..... if you already have a prefered grape (mine is Syrah), then look to try from different countries until you find something that sits well with you (it's South Africa for me).The one problem with this approach is, when you go "directly" to smaller winemakers there's only a finite amount of a certain vintage (unlike the larger companies that mass-produce), so you will find that a certain wine you like might just run out of stock.Oh well, it gives me an excuse to try even more.
