Now, I DID say I’d be giving you my tasting notes on CHEAP wine.  So as not to disappoint, I am providing you with feedback on a cellar I have never heard of.  And at $9.99 for a Jeroboam at retail in my grocery store, you know it isn’t one of the Wine Spectator’s Spectator Selections.   And I didn’t pay $9.99 because it was on sale.  Still …

Vineyard:     Livingston Cellars
Varietal:       Chablis Blanc
Vintage:       NV
Appellation: California
Price:          $9.99 per Jeroboam

Notes:     I’ll make this brief.  For a wine that labels it’s Chablis as Chablis Blanc, I was pleasantly surprised.  Did it knock my socks off?  No.  But it presented a nice solid core of white peach flavor and plenty of acidity to stand up to food.  I’d buy it again for the price.  Yes, I would.  If you’re looking for a pleasant wine to drink at a summer get-together, this wouldn’t be a bad buy.  Especially if it’s outside and your attendees aren’t wine aficionados.  If they are, then you need to look elsewhere.

Important:  I am not a professional sommelier or wine connoisseur.  I have taste buds, however, and know what I like.
