Hello, all! As my user name indicates, I am a true wine idiot. I know virtually nothing about wine. However, I have a friend who seems to be somewhat of a wine connoisseur. She recently did a huge favor for me and I would like to present her with a gift for helping me out. I figured that a good bottle of wine would be a perfect gift. That leaves me in the lurch, though since I wouldn't know a good bottle from a bad bottle.
Could someone offer me a good suggestion on what I should purchase. I am looking to purchase a red wine, I think. Around $50-$60 a bottle would be nice and it has to be somewhat readily available for purchase as I don't want to spend a lot of time hunting something down.
I know that I am leaving myself wide open here since I have very few specifications. However, at this point, I will consider any recommendations.
