This is a great way you have it broken down
It's comforting to know that I'm not the only one who likes a glass (or two) of red wine every day

Everyday Wine -- costs $12 or less per 750 ml bottle (some we've enjoyed are around $7, the less they cost, the better for our pocketbook).
Weekly Wines -- cost between $12 and $24; you should be sure to drink better wines once in a while so you will have basis for comparison.
Monthly Wines -- costs between $25 and $50. Look for an occasion to drink one of these every month or two.
Special Occasion Wines -- cost more than $50. Of course you won't probably drink one of these on EVERY special occasion, but you should try to have one at least once a year.

Red.

White wine is .... unfulfilling? Totally non-satisfying to me.

Forgive my clumsy vocabulary.

It's like ..."am I drinking ANYTHING here?"

Was it Casilio de Diablo? Castle of the Devil? That is one of my favorites.......not spicy or hot but really full-flavored.........

Would it be "Casillero del Diablo" which means "The Devil's Cellar"? They are from Chile and make several different wines. Here is a picture:

And I use the Taylor Port for tomato sauces, beef stew, chili. and more dishes.
Fwiw, Port is not a red wine, it is a fortified wine. and there are several different types. The most common Ports are Ruby and Tawny. then there are vintage ports. Port (and other fortified, sweet wines) are the longest agers. Some vintage Ports are still around and drinkable after more than 100 years.

Here is the link to the Wikipedia explanation of fortified wines.

and now I have to stop writing and thinking about it, because I'm doing a cleanse this week and can't have any until Sunday!

I usually drink white wine if I'm just relaxing or want a drink. My husband and I usually drink red wine with a meal. I have a nice Malbec for later tonight.

Both red and white, hopefully in the same evening! A perfect evening partying or hanging out might start with, a Sauvignon Blanc, be followed with an Alsace Riesling, a Chablis, and finally a Grgich Hills Chardonnay or something.
Then I would like to enjoy some Marsannay, a little Greek St.Georges, perhaps a Rhone wine, maybe a Barbera, an Oregon Pinot Noir, a Washington Cab Franc, and finally a Bordeaux or a mountain Cali blend.
And if there is any room left...a single malt scotch.

for me, all that would be followed with a major hangover!
