Cheapo Night

8 bucks. Red Wine. One litre bottle. 13% alcohol. Sounds too good to be true? Well, this ain't no Chateau Petrus, but the Bodegas de Nobella, vino de mesa, NV, from Yecla in Spain sure is a bargain. Really not expecting much, I sometimes buy these el cheapo wines on a whim just to see.... This one is faintly fruity on the nose, light bodied but strawberrish and really not unpleasant at all on the palate. Quite short, but what do you want for 8 bucks? I give this a solid "OK", you could bring it to a casual (non-dinner) party no problem. Wouldn't drink it on a saturday night, though. For value, gets a solid "can't beat it for the money", just don't get carried away thinking this is a grand wine - remember how you much you paid for it!!
