$9.99My last experience with a Beaujolais left me never wanting to drink it again. That was over 10 years ago when I was living in Hong Kong and the “Nouveau” variety of Beaujolais was a popular French global export. At that time the cheap mass-market brand that I drank was fake-sweet, sticky-sweet, gross-sweet.
$7.99S mooth like buttah and then crisp. It snaps shut on your mouth like a Venus-flytrap when it’s caught its prey. But then mellows with a slightly alcoholic finish. A little light for my tastes. But I’m a loud and overbearing type. Aromatic herbal notes, almost flowery but not too sweet. Still, I’m giving whites a fair shot.

$7.99Of course I know that it’s not supposed to make a difference between a twist cap and a cork but there’s just something about popping a cork on a bottle of wine that I love. And despite the fact that this wine has a twist cap, I had a pretty good experience with it.

$6.99I ‘m making an effort to try more white wines, which are not typically my favorite. I’m such a wine racist!
It’s just that some whites have this musky, skunky flavor that I do not currently enjoy. But I will drink on, on a mission to find the white wines that will satisfy my tastes. But who knows, maybe I’ll develop a palate for skunky white wines. That’s the beauty of exposing yourself to new and different things.
