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!
Medium ruby garnet color. Very tangy, boysenberry, grapey, rhubarby nose, with a bit of stoniness. Bright, tangy, and much more minerally in the mouth, bone dry, with great acids. Dry cherrystone/berry fruit attacks the palate. A bit of soft tannin, and crisp acids. This is a very refreshing wine to drink with fatty foods or grilled burgers in hot weather. Not complex by any stretch, but refreshing on a summer night. B. Was $17.99 at Whole Foods in the Clarendon area of Arlington. Imported by Dionysos Imports, Manassas, VA.
