HA! Leave it to Frankie to read between the lines!

But no... I went to Total Wine wit da puppy (he likes wandering the aisles and the employees love him) and asked one of the wino's for a recommendation. Told him that I like reds, but they usually give me a headache and he recommended an "old world" style. Chose one from the Greek section that was actually from Portugal.

It's delicious and no headache.

Made a braised beef the other day with balsamic vinegar, beef broth and some cheap merlot. I don't drink wine nowadays but I do cook with it occasionally. No idea what year or what winery, too lazy to go look. This one was like $7 a bottle or something. Not worth it to spend a lot of money on wine to cook with.

I NEVER cook with "cooking wine." It's a rip off. It's just cheap wine (not even sure I'd classify it as real wine) with a bunch of salt and preservatives added then sold at about 1000x what it's really worth.

When I did partake in drinking wine, I liked dry reds and I'd say merlot was my favorite.

If you wouldn't drink it, don't cook with it. $7 does not get you drinkable wine IMHO. $10 will.

Prolly could have done a little better at auction but you take your chances and this is confirmed plus they handle all the shipping/packing charges.

I had a buddy who lived near Ojai and volunteered to work at the winery. He always had some fantastic special bottles of their Syrahs.

The Two Buck Chuck of Shiraz for about $5 it's hard to beat. Iffn you can find the Reserve at around $10-11 it drinks better than most $20 bottles IMO.

I think,

Seci Cianti Clasico
Storia de Familia

But what do I know?

Chianti Classico has by far the best vineyards in Chianti. 2019 is a very good vintage. The bottle you had is 100% Sangiovese I think.
