OK Buddies. Here is a great 2005 Bordeaux that will pair well with lots of foods as well as sipping by itself. This one is from the Haut-Medoc region of Bordeaux. The wine recently got a 90 point ranking from Robert Parker and is obtainable in the Bay Area for under $22!!
The wine is: 2005 Lanessan, Haut-Médoc
From the first sip you can taste the dark plum/purple-tinged with a beautiful nose of new saddle leather, spice box, black currants, and a hint of unsmoked cigar tobacco, it offers medium body, admirable richness, decent acidity, and ripe tannin
