Gejas Big Bold Red Private Reserve 2005
Geja’s Café was Chicago's first wine bar, opening in the Old Town neighborhood in 1965. Our founder, John Davis, always has had a philosophy to have a wide selection of wines both by the glass and the bottle at moderate prices. We feature many wine festivals throughout the year, showcasing wine regions and grapes from around the world.
Good wine for the price. Rich flavor, excellent with food. The only negative is a slightly sour aftertaste. But with dinner or appetizers , it is excellent.
smooth, light fresh table wine, rate 3.2

Food Pairings for Gejas Big Bold Red Private Reserve
Notes by Spirti of Wine: In the glass: Medium deep red with hints of brick at the edges. On the nose: Poured cool with a brief decant and swirled vigorously, shows shy light purple aromas with a touch of funk. From the aroma, seems like this will be somewhat dry, perhaps thin. On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact much sweeter and rounder than I anticipated. Brings tangy blueberries forward to the middle of your mouth. These are surrounded by some vanilla oak. Simple flavors, but pleasant. The finish is fast, but clean. In summary: Overall, rates three stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale, making it a best value at its bargain price.
