River Road Chardonnay

River Road Chardonnay, 2008, Sonoma County, $9.99.  They say:  abundant citrus with tropical fruits and hint of spice.  We say:  very light and pleasant, bit of citrus.  Buy again:  probably.  Actually it’s embarrasses me to say it, but $9.99 is kind of high for one of our light summer wines.  We are more of a $4.99-$7.99 kind of daily wine drinkers.  Sad, I know.

    I’m really glad you do this. I’ve tried a couple that you would buy again and enjoyed them both. As a non connoisseur, I don’t like paying the big bucks either for the non special occasion wine.

    I discovered Bohemian Highway chardonnay thanks to you! Unfortunately, I’ve never found a $4 steal like you, but even when it’s not on sale $8 is still a deal!

    LOL! I’m with you on the prices! The only time I try the more expensive ones is when they are marked $5 off. HOWEVER, I do have my standards. I have a preference for Cabernet which (of course!) means that Husband prefers white. He bought a jug wine last week that looked like Sundrop or Mountain Dew in a glass.

    Grrrrross!!!

    I figure that anyone can find a good expensive wine. it’s the thrifty drinkers who are the clever ones! (Roma rocket notwithstanding!)
