help the noob

I'm looking for a good, cheap wine ($15 or less thereabouts) to serve with a traditional Thanksgiving dinner -- but I'm really inexperienced when it comes to understanding and choosing wines. I'm looking at two wines in particular: Bernard Griffin 2001 Merlot and Masi 1999 Campofiorin Ripasso. What do you think? Good, bad match w/ turkey? Personal experiences? Will I be able to find either of these, or similar wines, in my local grocery store? (There's no way I'm setting foot in a wine shop. Imagine my noob shame!)

Am I on the wrong path altogether here, or what? :)
