The Wine: Neboa Albarino, Rias Baixas, Spain, 2018
What we Tasted: Peach, apple, pineapple, “buttery,” honey, “chalky,” “woody,” “a little lemony”
What we Guessed: California Sauvignon Blanc, French Pinot Gris, New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, Chilean Sauvignon Blanc
What Andy Guessed: Andy guessed French Viognier. At least they are both Old-World, aromatic whites!
What we Thought: I think we mostly liked this Albarino, although one taster said it was “too heavy” and another said it was “not crisp enough.” I enjoy light bodied, high acid whites as well!
The Wine: “Three” Zinfandel, Contra Costa County, California, 2018
What we Tasted: Blackberry, prunes, “plums & sunscreen,” black cherry, “muggy earth,” smoke, “fruit cake spice,” vanilla, coffee, “basement,” chocolate, “a bookstore”
What we Guessed: Argentine Malbec, California Zinfandel, Australian Shiraz
What Andy Guessed: Argentine Malbec. Not Andy’s best blind tasting day.
What we Thought: I think we mostly enjoyed this beefy Zin, although one taster said that the “alcohol content reminds me of college parties.” It was pretty boozy!
