Sommelier André Mack has made a career tasting the finest of wines, but that doesn't mean he can't enjoy a bottle on the cheaper end of the spectrum. In fact, we asked him to enjoy twenty bottles of red wine under $15 and let us know his honest thoughts on them. Not all of these wines are winners (and that's part of the fun of it), but a few are and are well worth it.
