Welcome to DC! I would not use anything labeled "cooking wine" for anything, it has so much sodium added. Red wine should be fine, though sherry has a different type of flavor. Depends on what you're making.

if you don't mind the color and tannin added by the red wine, then by all means use red wine... you might not be able to substitute *sherry wine* with red wine, but for sherry cooking wine, everything is better than cooking wine...

Sherrys have a very different flavor from red wines. You cn sub one for the other but the dish's flavor will be noticeably different.

it's the most expensive food by weight in the world. but you don't really use it that much, so I never really cared about the price.

Sounds like you just created coq a vin.
