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.

    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~~~~~*

    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
