    Bodegas Castano Hecula 2005
    Sold Out $9.99
    2009 vintage available for $11.99
    A sip immediately after opening might shock a palate used to less challenging vintages. The tannin is very prominent, and the first effect is almost like a persimmon: somewhat styptic. But as it opens up, you realize you are into a very good wine, excellent, indeed, for the price.

    Rafael Palacios Louro Do Bolo Godello 2006
    Sold Out $11.69
    2011 vintage available for $19.99
    The Godello taste is one that can be quickly acquired. I don't have the vocabulary to decribe it; maybe funky fruit. But dry and crisp. Just not your customary pinot grigio or chardonnay or any other white grapes. Highly recommended for a new experience but your guests might think you were serving them something weird.

    This is a perfectly decent rose that I would be happy to be served in a restaurant. I'm not sure it merits an 88 rating. It's a little thin and a little harsh.

    If you want a dry, crisp, sparkling white that will please everyone unless they are expecting the best French champagne, this is it.
