I have just consumed a tall glass of V9, which is V8 with the addition of an exotic 9th ingredient known as a lotta whiskey. I've had seven of these and I can still drive and I know this because I just drove over my cat.
Yes, it is. I'm not a huge BN fan, but it's actually one of the few red wines that pairs well with turkey...so it's always a good choice for Thanksgiving dinner. Also, because it's such a young variety and doesn't carry many of the more complex characterictics of red wine that turns off people who don't drink it on a regular basis, it's a good "safe bet" for a crowd.Isn't the Beaujolais Nouveau due out soon as well??
I love BN! Grocery stores in my area sell the Villages for a reasonable $12.If you can find a Beaujolais Villages Nouveau she may well enjoy that even more; a little bit smoother than the regular BN.
