$5 Bottle . . . Classy

One night on our way home from dinner, we got out of the cab to make a stop at Union Square Wine Shop. We stayed in the discount section. The result was going home with three bottles for under $25. This Astica Malbec from Argentina may not be the tastiest wine, but it's not bad for $5. The "this is like drinking rubbing alcohol" facial expressions start diminishing for every glass of red you polish. Gotta love the first harsh sip from a cheapo wine. By the fourth glass, it's your favorite wine.

The Union Square Wine Shop has a lot of variety. But we prefer our favorite neighborhood wine joint - the Chelsea Wine Country.
