When I saw this bottle of Chinese wine at the convenient store, I had to try it. This cost $7, and it definitely tasted like a $7 bottle of wine from the convenient store. A flat, bitter version of something trying to be a Cabernet, I couldn’t finish even one glass.

Wine bars and shops seems to be sprouting in side streets frequented by young professionals and couples.

Although I can’t afford the fancy best-of-the-best imported French wines, I’d be curious to try a better bottle of Chinese wine next time.
