I have never tasted Bordeaux and I feel as though I am missing out on something special. I am not what you would call an experienced wine drinker, more like a dabbler. I have a deep apprieciation for fine wines, but dont usually select a fancy label unless I am familiar with it. I will rarely try something new without first getting advice, opinions or some form of guidance on the product first from someone who knows what to look for. I am not yet ready for anything too high priced as I have growing kids, and pretty much everything I make in money keeps them in clothes and shoes so I have a small to moderate budget. Any tips or comments and advice are welcome.
