Pulpo 2014 Albariño

Rias Baixas DO, Spain; 12.5% ABV
$3 at the Richmond, CA, store on 19 Feb

img_00501I’ve quite enjoyed Albariño from Rias Baixas before, and this wine, with its pretty label, screw cap, and low price, was an obvious buy.  It is indeed a good buy, with somewhat delicate flavors of gentle lemon, yellow apple / pear, and  honeyed wood, with crisp acid and a drying minerality.

The next day, the flavors are less delicate, the apple becoming more pineapple, and overall still quite tasty for the low price.  It’s not as good as the previous Albariños, but it is only $3.
