Ahhh, that old adage; "Expensive wine always tastes better." There is some truth to this statement however. As a sommelier and avid wine drinker I must admit that the majority of wines that are more expensive are better quality and generally taste better. Although as you know, taste is subjective and what tastes great to you, may taste like broccoli to me (I hate broccoli).
Now, let's talk about a wine I have been tasting over the years and spending no more than $12 a bottle, sometimes even catching it at $8 a bottle at some stores "Crazy Deals".
