Weekend Wine Reviews #31

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.

Maybe they'll have it on sale? I tend to wait for expensive wines to come on half price and then stock up ;)

...and there is nothing wrong with that!

Rather smart, I would say.

Pam - We tend to drink wine within your range of prices too, and we've found some fabulous wines as have you! Why pay more'n you have to?

Yours are the only wine reviews I ever read. Thank you for providing them.

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!

Ah, don't be embarrassed...we're the same way....and a $15 bottle would definitely mean a special occasion. This sounds nice, though! =)

Everyday wine should be as inexpensive and good as possible in my book. ;-)

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!)
