On a budget in this economy I bought a 1.5 liter of this to splash around with my pasta dinner tonight not expecting much. Surprisingly it did exactly what I often want wine to do; plainly compliment the food. It tasted nothing like "Burgundy" but it was much drier and simpler than I thought it would be. Not that I thought it would be complex or anything but I figured it would have a general "off flavor" taste and/ or a weird finish which it simply didn't have.
Wine doesn't have to be "art" to be serve purpose does it? By that I mean the wine didn't amaze me by any stretch it simply served a purpose and quite well, like comfortable shoe.
