Domaine Cabirau - Serge & Nicolas
A bit of a fruit bomb, but not overly so (ABV 14.5%). Interesting flavor profile not encountered often - kind of a dry port, but not quite. Should age really well. Try again in 2019.
Boede - Le Pavillon
Nice for the price. Quite substantial and complex for a sub-$20 wine. Typical Languedoc acidity and garrique. Would have liked a little more fruit, but this drank perfectly fine regardless. Would probably buy again.
SeaGlass - Sauvignon Blanc
Not as full or corpulent and more acidity than previous bottles. Not sure if this was due to vintage conditions or the winemaker's choices. Still a good value and a great pairing with seafood.
Marques de Caceres - Rosado
The fruit, tannins and acidity were in balance. Refreshing and somewhat light on the palate. Will continue to buy.
Ramon Ayala Lete e Hijos - Vina Santurnia Reserva
This bottle was not as firm as the last but still good. Generous, dark fruit, silky and easy drinking. Not very complex but a good value.
