Love wine...have become somewhat knowledgeable over the last couple of years.  You don't need to spend a lot of cash for a good bottle.  I generally keep mine below $13.
I prefer dry, full bodied wines that you have to chew through to finish.  Cabernet Sauvignon is the absolute lowest full bodied wine I will drink on the dryness/full body scale.  No Merlot or Pinot.
I'm with you - lots of moderately priced good wines. I am more middle of the road though, not a big fan of really dry wines. My wife likes it on the sweet end, like riesling and moscato wines...

I tend to stay in the middle 5 of the red, and the leftmost 3 or 4 of the whites...

Wow, I haven't heard of many of these varietals and I thought I knew at least a little something about wine.

I love pretty much all red wines that are not high in tannins.  Of course, different wines are for different occasions, so although I love a sweet port I wouldn't drink it with dinner.

For whites I like just Californian-style oaky, buttery Chardonnays, sweeter Rieslings and Gew├╝rztraminers, or dessert wines.  Although I usually can't stand stuff like Sauvignon Blanc I've been known to like that style of whites when done with the right wine pairing.

I feel like I said this somewhere else here, but, my favoritest favorite wine is Semillon, when I can find it, and dry Riesling is my second favorite. Both are a perfect match for not being bone dry and not being sweet. This entire diagram is perfect!! Thanks for posting. :)

Sauvignon blanc is my go-to white wine. I like the ones with a peach/passion fruit vibe.

I got some strawberries to bring out the flavour too.

The Zinfandels we get from Amador County, CA are quite dry...big and chewy.  The grapes get nice and stressed from the hot, dry climate.  The old vine zins are exceptional.

I am having a glaas of Wild Horse "Unbridled" pinot noir, 2010.  Exceedingly pretentious, with just the right hints of arrogance and disdain.
