Yes, particularly mixed grape wines that have robust and complex flavors that change as one enjoys a single draught, and, even better a long finish.

If one can find this, and at a price not too dear, all the better.

Any suggestions?

Mmm... the bigger and redder the better... one of my faves is "The Dark Side" from Cloof Winery SA... obviously the name was the first attraction for me... it is a blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon (my fave) , 14% Shiraz... this is their Tasting Note:<br />
<br />
The Dark Side is all about hedonism – the pursuit of pleasure. We invite wine lovers to succumb to the hedonistic allure of gorgeously sensuous Cabernet Sauvignon entwined with Shiraz and the spiced vanilla of French Oak. A wine with curves where others don’t have places. Uninhibitedly richer, juicier, bigger, bolder – and proud of it.<br />
<br />
It is intensely oaky which I love... hope you get the opportunity to give it a try if you haven't already... enjoy ;)
