"This is probably going to be one of many posts on 2009 Bordeaux deals so going forward I’ll post a link to the 2009 Bordeaux tag, where you can easily access all of the deals.

Whenever I see a wine under $10, especially a red, I’m skeptical. It’s just very difficult to produce, market, ship and sell a decent bottle for that price. But the 2009 Bordeaux vintage is so good, I gave this $6.99 bottle a shot.

I’m very glad I did. This is simply an all around delicious wine, with no qualifiers like “for the price” necessary. To me, that’s the true measure of a great daily drinker. I don’t want a wine that’s “good for $7″, because good for $7 frankly isn’t very good. I want a wine that’s just good!

2009′s rich, ripe vintage character shines through in this Bordeaux where the 60% Merlot produces a broad feel on the palate. This wine will embarrass other 2009′s that cost 4x, and lesser vintages that cost 10x. As usual, L.A. Wine Co has the lowest price in the country." (Nickel & Dime)
