I stopped by the local Sweet Bay we shop at yesterday on the way home.
I promised the wife I would see about getting us a small steak for dinner last night.
While walking thru the wine section I saw they had a shopping cart with wine in it marked down. So of course being the tight wad I am right now, I had to give it a look.
I was surprise to find a Merlot from New Zealand in it. I looked it over and saw the price was 7.99 and thought, well why not. Then to my bigger surprise I saw it was dated 2004.
I have to admit, I wish there had been a case of it. It was not a bad drink, and to top it off, it was discounted to $4.00.

Actually good. The biggest thing I notice about any wine is the acid. I have stomach troubles and sometimes it's like taking a swallow of battery acid.
This was very smooth with out the usual "BAM!" when it hits bottom.
