Added Oct 22, 2009 at 11:24pmI once had a pompous boyfriend who made a Very Big Deal about the release of Beaujolais nouveau every year. Say it with me, W h a t e v e r ... The Volcanique is a truly impressive expression of Gamay. White pepper tickles your mouth while humble raspberry and woody herbs round out the finish.

Added Aug 9, 2007 at 2:53pmSometimes nostalgia is the strongest flavor, with the longest finish. Dry, balanced and even, not yeasty. It was served with warm, serrano wrapped figs. That was a nice combo.

Added Jun 18, 2009 at 8:54pmIt's the perfect Summer white wine. No, really, don't argue with me. It is perfect. Too bad I only got my hands on 4 bottles.

Added Jun 3, 2009 at 9:28pmMore Trader Joe's "value" swill. Smells like Pabst when you open a bottle, and gets worse from there. Wouldn't even use it to make sangria.

Added May 13, 2009 at 11:12pmIf I were being generous I'd call it subtle, but truthfully it's bland. I expected the tempranillo to make things interesting but there's just... nothing... there... Might be a good choice for your mom.

Added Mar 24, 2008 at 9:17pmThis magic Malbec manages to please both the novice drinker who insists she prefers "something sweet" and the sophisticate who enjoys "something interesting." Wish I'd gotten a case.

Portuga Vinho Blanco 2007
Added Feb 29, 2008 at 2:45pmDescribed as "easy to drink with a refreshing acidity." I disagree. Bland and tasteless with a peculiar acidity certain to sour even the strongest stomach.
