El Albar Lurton Tempranillo 2014 review by (PB)

Hefty Burgundy hue Bouquet–awkward aroma up front, touches of black licorice, and odd fruit with nice spicing Palate–awkward front palate with a voluptuous foundation that is plush and silky.

This Sonoma Chard runs around $30 but I think the store I got it from for $13…

Finish: fresh and green with lime notes. Overall: delightful young Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, New Zealand. It’s a steal st $11.99 that I bought it at.
