Price is not the only indicator

Okay, admit it, you are at the LCBO and you want a wine that is just a little bit tastier than everyday fare, something you haven't tried before - so you decide to spend just a little bit more on a label you don't know, thinking it will all work out in the end.
That's what I did with this Cannonau di Sardegna 2005, using a few cues that I thought would bring a good taste:  '2005' + 13.5% alcohol for that full bodied taste + just a little bit pricier than every day.  And the 'uncork one hour before serving at room temperature.'
Well, maybe this would have been better with red meat instead of tourtiere.  Pucker up for a mouthful of tanin
