Friday night,...working late... I had a bottle of this value bordeaux (something like $10) sitting in the office. A guy pulled out a six pack of guiness. I pulled out 6 Riedels and this bottle and a cork screw.

Simple straight forward, lush red and ripe red fruits, berries, very little in the way of acid and structure, older wood in the background, and entire bottle was finished off in about 3 minutes...... Onewards to the Guinsesseseses......

This is the type of wine I would want in a cafe in France. simple and nice
