Since my expert wine selection process includes only two calculations – either a recommendation from a friend or a bottle that received 90 points or better from a reputable wine publication, my choice of this Bordeaux was outside my standard modus operandi. I was eavesdropping in the wine store and overheard that 2005 was a great year for Bordeaux and that you can’t go wrong if you can still find some. Lo and behold, I found this bottle and the rumors were correct… it was delightful. At $20.00 it was a great find. Easy to drink, smooth and not too heavy. That’s the best description I can give. I wish I could say that I can taste the aromatic undertones of berry with the mingling of smoky oak and cassis, but I don’t even know what that means. Hopefully you can find this in your local wine store. If not, ask if they have any 2005 Bordeaux they can recommend.
Fantastic 2005 Bordeaux
