In my opinion...
The quality has improved dramatically over the past few years. There are some unusual cepages here such as Melnik (Chiroka), and Mavrud, and some interesting blends as a result. Try Cluster, which comes in two varieties, Mavrud & Rubin (Syrah & Nebbiolo) or Cabernet Franc & Merlot. Not exactly cheap but I enjoy both.

Another favourite of mine is Damianitza No Mans Land Black Label, but that of course is my personal taste.

I think it is best to try a few across the price range, as I have tasted excellent cheap wines and very poor expensive ones, so price is not necessarily indicative.

I still prefer a good Pauillac though, Mr Frenchman. :wink:
