Tired of over-paying for a nice weeknight bottle? Then read on...
Today's special began with a phone call from an old friend who owns a small distributor. He has a salesperson-a good saleperson- who handles our account. But he felt this salesperson was under-representing a certain portfolio of wines, and wanted to bring them by himself. I asked what wines. He said, 'Bulgarian'. Well.
Bulgarian. "Honestly, David, that's not the salesperson's fault. I haven't asked for Bulgarian wines. Do I need Bulgarian wines?"
Apparently, I do. And so do you, because the majority of what he showed me was very good. And really, really cheap.
For example: this soft, juicy, pretty Chardonnay, overflowing with peach, apple, and pear flavors. A little citrus, a touch of vanilla, a hint of something floral. And the Cabernet-Mavrud (a local grape), just bursting with ripe blackberry, plum, cinnamon, and vanilla. The Cab gives structure and the Mavrud fleshes it out. Pretty much your perfect bargain sippers. We're combing 3 of each to make the perfect sixpack.
For $8 per. Bring it on, Bulgaria!
