Weekend Wine Reviews #30

San Elias

San Elias, Sauvignon Blanc, 2009, Chile, $7.99.  They say:  pale in color with a gooseberry bouquet and fresh zesty flavor.  We say:  light and pleasant.  Buy again:  probably not.  It is sad to say, but if we can find a wine for $4.99 that we adore, when we are only meh about one for $7.99, it just doesn’t make it to our list.  That is how cheap we are.

You are NOT cheap. you're frugal. And I totally agree with you.

Wine has no value unless you enjoyed it.

Trader Joes has completely ruined me. My favorite wine there is $3.99 and everyone loves it!

Hmm. Sounds like something I'd like my tombstone to read. Since it doesn't fit the wine, can I have it? I could file the passage away for later. Much later.

Give it some thought. Thanks! SparkleFarkle~~~~~*

you are NOT cheap - you just know what you like and won't let prices interfere with your decision!

I love it that you don't let price mean more to you than the flavor! I will be going back through your reviews when I make it back to the states and have to leave all my favorite wines behind..

I just tried the Cab from this label. It was decent for the price. I'd buy it again. Thanks for sharing. Blessings, SusanD
