Domaine De Pajot, Les Quatre Cépages 2013

France
$10
I’ve been spending more money per bottle lately. Now, either my tastes in wine have changed, or it’s the cost of living increase in the state I now call home. It’s possible that it’s both.

I do have to admit that the $8 a bottle target that I have imposed upon myself has been more difficult to hit since my tastes have grown along with my curiosity. I will continue to aim for $8 but it may end up more around $10, or $12. I just can’t be bound by the price any longer! Well, within reason.

Despite that, I will continue to strive for thrift AND quality.

That said, this latest bottle was a delicious $10 accident. I was returning home from “Mission: Kimchi,” having located a jar at the neighborhood Whole Paycheck, I mean Foods. Between the kimchi pick-up and home I spotted the cute little corner wine shop I only visited once before, Streetcar Wine & Beers, and thought, hey, what goes with spicy pickled cabbage? As one does. So I bee-lined it.

‘Epilogo’ Sauvignon Blanc-Moscatel 2012

La Mancha, Spain
$7.99
Curiosity about this blend from the Spanish Bodegas Yuntero caused me to pause and consider. Sauvignon Blanc, a favorite, but with Moscatel blended in, 10 percent. Hmm, okay, why not.

For the sake of this blog, which mostly exists to help bring focus to my self-taught wine education and the off-chance that others might benefit or at the very least be entertained, I decided to give it a go.

Hola Ya’ll! — Spanish food night

After a Spanish themed movie date with Pedro Almdovar I became inspired to just roll with it and continue along this path that lead to most things Spanish. I picked up a bottle each of a Godello, and a Sauvignon Blanc, as well as provisions to make gazpacho.

Once home I took advantage of the gorgeous, cloudless weather to walk to my favorite cheese shop for recommendations. I ended up with two different Spanish sheep’s milk cheeses, each delicious in their own right. I nabbed a Manchego aged for 6 months as well as a Zamarano, which to my knowledge I’ve never had before.

Los Vascos Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Casablanca, Chile
Splurge-y
$9.99
I ‘m drinking white wine and I’m enjoying it! Somewhere in the world a pig has just taken flight.

I live for this. I can’t help it, but I just love it when you’ve convinced yourself you don’t like something until you let yourself be convinced otherwise. I’m giddy with the pleasure of having let myself experience this.

Shit, I’m such a sap.
