new wine. he usually likes what i don't like (red and sour, no sweet) but we can compromise on yellow tail shiraz. he doesn't like trying new things because he's afraid he'll not like it, so i might get 2 or 3 reasonably priced bottles for his bday or take him to a wine fest.
I dare say you will not find a red wine under ten bucks that drinks like this one. Apothic is one of the boldest, most luscious and complex wines I've ever enjoyed. It drinks like a bottle that costs three times as much, easily.
