Today is the start of a new week. Over the course of this past weekend, I was on call with the hospital and ended up working approx 22 hours- PURE exhaustion. So, today I carefully brought out Big Carl and told him we're going on a date...an evening love affair. He graciously agreed:
I am pleasantly surprised by this wine. I had an Albarino once in the past and have been searching locally for one. Stopped at the local grocer and found this little treasure of gold! With a beautiful golden rod color, it has a wonderful pear and floral bouquet with a touch of mineral. It has a rather quick front with a beautiful and surprisingly long and clean finish. The finish is where you can really notice the pear and the touch of mineral, of which was strangely enjoyable. Even noticed a bit of citrus. In a way it reminds me of a cross between an pinot grigio and sauvignon blanc. Has similar aspects, but truly is in it's own league. It's crisp, refreshing, and overall delightful. At only $13 a bottle, I will be going towards this again. What can I say? Spain has it going on :)...OE LAY...
