Wednesday, 5/23, Little Rock, AR
After a day full of meetings and some equipment testing at work, I made my way home and pretended like the grass really doesn't need to be cut. Man it does grow fast here in the razorback state! I picked up today's reviewed wine with some trepidation as it was 1) cheap and 2) a Georges Duboeuf selection out of France. Now in the past I haven't particularly liked this vineyard's selections but, as you probably already know, I'm always on the prowl for good, inexpensive (sounds much nicer than cheap), wine to enjoy mid-week. This was one of those close-out, $3.99/bottle specials that I'm usually willing to take a gamble on and gamble I did. Needless to say my gamble paid off. This was a 60% Chardonnay/ 40% Sauvignon Blanc mix that was deep gold in color in the glass. On the nose I was able to pick up the typical lime and citrus flavors from the sauvignon blanc and a little oak from the chardonnay. In the mouth more citrus, some apple and pear notes as well as a little bit of the oak I picked up in the nose. A very nice lush, smooth finish made for an enjoyable bottle of wine for the middle of the week. I easily gave this one 4 Corkscrews due to it's excellent taste and incredible value at the close-out price. Not sure if you'll be able to find this, but if you do, pick up a bottle and enjoy. Sit Long, Talk Much, Laugh Often, Drink Wine!

My boyfried brought this wine home hoping to surprise me. He knows nothing about wine but thought the price was right and the bottle was pretty. I smelled this wine and it smelled awfull. He begged me to taste it and I it ofcourse tasted like it smelled. Disgusting.
I poured it down the drain and kept the bottle. YUKKKY! I give it 0 corkscrews.

You might have gotten a corked bottle. Next time take it back to where you got it from and demand a refund. Most reputable wine dealers will know a corked bottle when they smell it.
