For new years, I had this crazy idea to buy a more expensive wine than usual; after all bringing on a new year was a special occasion. So we bought the above wine; the sign in Costco said it was rated 97 points by wine enthusiasts. 97 points ! And it was $54… and the way my logic works, the more expensive wine means its better, right?
I dont claim to be a fancy wine connoisseur; I drink a lot of wine, but I am not the type of wine drinker who pushes one side of my nose against the glass and smells spring time in the valley as I spit my wine out , nor am I the type who eats cheeses or grapes or whatever foods to have my pallette grasp the certain essential flavors aged on the wine. Though Id like to think or pretend I am some fancy wine drinker, in reality, what it comes down to is can I drink this? Or not?
I was able to drink a full glass with more ease than I usually am when drinking red wine. And, I finished my glass before my husband finished his, which rarely ever happens.
Would I buy as expensive of a bottle as I did? Probably, but only for special occassions. I don’t think my wallet would able to handle spending that much on a regular basis
