price doesn't reflect quality or taste.....theres bottles for 30 bucks that taste pretty damn good depending on what you pair it with.

my favorite is Geo (syrah) Elqui Valley, Chile.

Next time STFFs....theres a thread 1/2 way down the page.

Agreed.

It all comes down to your friends taste. Is there a specific type your friend likes? Personally i like Merlot's and Malbec's.

The 2006 Tignanello is especially opulent in this vintage. Masses of dark red fruit, scorched earth and sweet oak emerge as this richly-textured Tignanello flows from the glass. The wine possesses superb density; all it needs is another few years to come together. Today it is remarkably vibrant and primary. Tignanello is 85% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.

From top to bottom this is a beautiful set of wines from Antinori. The estate’s 2006 Guado al Tasso, Tignanello and Solaia are all beautiful, even if they don’t appear to possess the elegance of the superb 2004s.
