There are many good choices out there.
The various Cote du Rhone wineries remain my favorites currently working through a couple of cases of this:
And a neighbor (he owns a wine and spirits distribution company that works with many of Atlanta's high-end restaurants) always keeps me up to date. One he brought over last weekend:
These are both well under 20 bucks a bottle retail. FWIW, I'm off the bandwagon on any of the southern hemisphere reds, although this French blend from Chile is a nice little oddity:

If you can find the Stags Leap Petite from 1992.. wow..
But the two I left in your post I also like.
When i buy cases, I get a mixture of flavors.. NH liquor stores have 10% off sales a few times a year.. On top of the already low prices..
As for a budget for wine.. I usually spend between $200-300 everytime I buy wine. When I bought the two cases, it came to just over $400. I had some Pinot Grigios that were $8/bottle and some cabs that were $40

So am I. I recently got a good bottle of Pinot, Coppola's for under .0. Good stuff. I guess I'm a pinot liker-drinker, cause my favorites are nearly always pinot, particularly the ones from the Willamette Valley.
I enjoy the Coppola Claret, its a very consistent drinkable table wine ...usually I can find it for $11-14.
I love California wines; they are some of the best in the world. If you aren't finding good California wines, well...I don't know what you are drinking...but you aren't looking in the right places....try these: Testarossa makes an excellent chardonnay...also try anything from Ridge. David Bruce produces some excellent reds as well. These aren't Napa wineries ...they are all in Silicon Valley. We visit them often.
Louis Jadot Pouilly Fuisse is a delicious French Chardonnay, Michel Redde makes a great Pouilly Fume.
Someone brought a Rombauer Zin to my house in Thanksgiving, excellent with dessert!
