The Wine...Ch. Timberlay Bordeaux Superieur 2009...The Scene...dinner at the household with a beef roast that turned out perfect. Opened this bottle and poured into a wine decanter that we purchased for a bargain at one of the dollar stores. I've seen these decanters going for close to $75 dollars online and grabbed this one off the shelf after the wife pointed it out. I guess were getting better at this wine thing now that were letting it breathe. Very fragrant smelling wine...letting my nose hover around the opening of the decanter like a dog sniffing a bone. Liked the taste of the wine that had a plum, blackberry tase to it. Enjoyed this one more than the Bordeaux White Blend that we brought of the same winery. I would buy again...
