A wine I've been waiting on.
I LOVED this wine. I bought it at Top Line Wines in Glendale, which is totally ghetto, but totally cheap. I went in to sell wine, of which I didn't sell a single bottle and ended up spending almost $400. Crazy, but I got some good stuff.
Tignanello, 2003, IGT.
Everyone knows this wine I know, and it seems almost passe to drink it. But it was soooo good. Like the quality ws engulfing my mouth and I thought it was so spectacular I did not want it to end! Just loads and loads of fruit and soft tannins and good acidity. It was explosive!
90% Sangiovese and 10% Cabernet... I bought it for $65, but I think it's up over $100 now...
A GREAT WINE TO RING IN THE NEW YEAR!!!
Sorry for the blurry picture again... but my candlesticks are in focus!
