I am Bordeaux-crazy these days, so sue me. I want structure, I want depth, I want complexity – things that I personally, cannot seem to find in relatively inexpensive California reds, but can still find enough in European reds to bring a smile to my palate. And these days, I think we can all agree that it’s all about value, thanks to the “recession-like” economy. One wine in particular that seems to be worth more than it costs is the Chateau Pey La Tour Bordeaux Superieur 2005 ($16.99 special). This tasty red is a medium- to full-bodied red blend of predominantly Merlot, with a bit of Cabernet Sauvignon, and small amounts of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot that possesses rich, voluptuous, unctuous black and blue fruits from start to finish, with good tannic grip, an excellent acidic backbone and finish to spare.

Another delicious red Bordeaux from the folks at Dourthe and controversial enologist Michel Rolland, this is a perfect match for grilled meats and summer barbeque.
