An idiosyncratic journal of wines I buy from a mix of Internet sources and retailers in the Northern Virginia/D.C. area. Mostly inexpensive and moderately-priced stuff, reflecting my frugal New England roots. Cent anni!

2006 Quinta do Alqeve "Tradicional" (Ribatejo, Portugal)
I drank and enjoyed the 2001 of this several years ago, but this iteration was disappointing.
Thin, tight, with altogether too much acidity (much of it volatile acidity, i.e., acetic acid), with little redeeming flavor. Avoid. F.
