Excess wine

Last night we had an unpleasant wine. It was a recommendation from a salesperson at the Manhattan Plaza Winery in response to a request for an inexpensive everyday wine in the sytle of Bordeaux.

He was very confident in his recommendation which is how I got over the fact that the wine had no appellation, no vintage, and the label looked sketchy.


Well, it was no good. Not what we were looking for at all. It was more in the style of wines like Yellow Tail. A lot of unbalanced flavor. The name of the wine characterized it well. Anyway, I'm not willing to trust that wine shop again anytime soon.
