Dear Dominion Dodge, I hate you with the passion of ten thousand fiery suns. I will never pay for your service again. Ever. I’m serious like Taylor Swift here. EVER! Signed, a very disgruntled customer whose car you have held hostage for two and half weeks.
Seriously, my car was SUPPOSED to have been done by today. Ready for pick up. But noooooooo. It may be done by Friday. Grrrrrr. And all that after they couldn’t even get me a loaner car for the first week. I swear. If this doesn’t call for a good wine Wednesday, I don’t know what does!
So, how about a bottle of Bordeaux to sooth the mind? This week’s selection is a 2000 Bordeaux wine from Chateau des Hauts de Pez in the St. Estephe region of France. This was their bronze medal vintage and costs around $28 a bottle.
- color: dark cherry
- scent: berries with smoke
- slightly earthy
- nice glass, but not my favorite Bordeaux
Some words from someone with more knowledge than me: “Soft, refined flavors and aromas of cassis and blackberry, with nice, spicy black pepper notes. This dry, medium-bodied wine has firm, yet silky tannins and finishes quite smoothly. An excellent companion to meals such as pork tenderloin.” from the folks at TotalWine.
