Cheap Red Wine

...or perhaps the word 'inexpensive' would be a better choice.

Friday night was a quick pasta dish with leftover sauce, a chopped plum tomato and a few scattered herbs. The wine was a 2006 La Serra Chianti that checked in at an amazing $8.99 a bottle. It was red, it smelled like wine, there was decent fruit and acid and a little tannin. There was nothing about this wine that said "look at me." All it said was "drink me." That's what we did.
