I'm a relatively novice wine drinker but I love Zins (not white Zins you fools) Aside from Pinot Nior, it's the best wine for a variety of different foods, everything from fish to a big steak. I have also been trying various red blends, lots of good ones out there. I would say Pinot Noir and Cabernet are just behind Red Zin for me, but it all changes.
A really good Spanish wine I had recently is Marquesa (or Casa De Marquesa, can't remember right now) Moderately price and fairly full bodied.
I'm a huge fan of Oregon, specifically Willamette Valley, Pinot Noir.
