What I like about wine:

I love the experience of finding the qualities (flavor, aroma) that remind me of nature. I enjoy being surprised by complexity and love any information I can get about pairings.

    Paco & Lola Albarino 2011
    Sold Out $11.99
    2013 vintage available for $19.99
    Style: Fruity & Smooth
    This is a good choice for someone tired of the usual varietals. I have to admit, at certain points during tasting this I did not entirely enjoy it! There are a number of flavors and nuances that come and go. There is a distinct concentration of honeydew melon, lemongrass, and simply: white grape juice. Predominately the nose has a honey-guava aroma. The fruit is ripe but not without a needed tartness. The heaviness is interesting, definitely a full bodied white, like whole milk. Floral notes of jasmine, apricot, citrus. And then - the finish is unique. I tasted a minerality, mixed with the pungent funk of a dry aged cheese. I normally like salinity in whites... But it was a bit bizarre. It's been a while since I have experienced a wine with so many layers. I'm not sure if they are in harmony or not, but this is great if you are experiencing palate fatigue. I'm guessing this would be perfect paired with a cheese plate....

    I really enjoyed this Merlot. Lush plum, soft and round mouthfeel, delicate spice. I will definitely buy a few more to have on hand. Elegant and reliable.
