Forestville and Pepperwood make inexpensive Syrah/Shiraz that are surprisingly good values for large gatherings. Forestville is often on sale for 3/$9 at Safeway markets in NoCal. It is a great party wine for pizza and BBQ. Just be sure to finish it the same day that you open it. Pepperwood is the better wine at +$1, but its cheap synthetic cork (plastic and sponge) is VERY difficult to remove. Happy Holidays to all!

ZinNoEsBlanco, Welcome to the Board! I use a wine cork pull (the kind with the two prongs) to get those synthetic corks out.
