Espiral Vinho Verde $3.99 *

It was Fish Taco Night! I really, really wanted to like this wine.   I hated it.  It was dry and tasted like crisp grapefruit with a hint of grass. It was also slightly sparkling which was just a tease as far as I am concerned.  It did taste better with the tacos, but no, I still didn't like it.  The remains of the bottle went down the drain and there was Miller Light in the beer drawer - thirst was quenched.

This may be a taste issue.  Maybe I just don't like Vinho Verde - you can't beat the price.  I'll try another bottle by a different maker and see, but as it stands, I am giving it one star.

  1. No one cares if you "liked" the wine. To review wine when you clearly know nothing about wine or how to taste it or rate it is a complete waste of everyone's time. Your description: "It was dry and tasted like crisp grapefruit with a hint of grass" indicates that you have a good palate. Your dissing of this wine for being precisely what a good vinho verde should be, indicates that you don't know what the wine should taste like. It's a good, cheap vinho verde. The fact that you didn't "like" it is of no interest to anyone.
