This is just a short note about a couple of bottles of wine that we tried.
The first wine that we had was from the California Collection by Beringer Chardonnay 2010. This is a generic California Chardonnay by Beringer Vineyards of Napa Valley. This was just a light Chardonnay that would not knock your socks off, but chilled on a warm summer day it did hit the spot.
The other wine we tried was one of the Spanish wines that we had bought from Elie Wines and I had written about a couple of weeks ago. I just could not resist trying one of the wines that we bought and this one was a winner. This was Nicolas Marcos Pesico 2011 and I was sad to see the end of the bottle. This is a wine designated as Vino de Calidad from the Castilla y Leon district of Spain. A blend of Carrasquin, Mencia, Verdejo Tinto and Albarin Tinto and it was just a smooth delightful wine. I guess I better get some more as there were only 575 cases of this wine made.
