And it was good stuff too!
1) Signature Cafe Roasted Turkey Breast or Turkey Pot Roast $5
2) 5-lb box of Clementines $5
3) Shrimp appetizer Platter $5
4) Fetzer Valley Oaks Chardonnay or Cabernet $5
My immediate reaction? I gotta try the $5 wine. Sheesh if it's horrible we'll toss it and never buy it again. Just kidding. It has to be completely undrinkable for us not to drink it. As in corked or something. But what the heck. So I bought one bottle of each.
We opened the Chardonnay that night and gave it a whirl. It's not bad. Not the most sophisticated wine on the planet. But not bad. And it doesn't have the oakey buttery notes that I don't like in Chardonnay so for me it was a completely drinkable, suck it down, kind of wine. Would I buy it again? Yes. Would I serve it to guests? Depends on who they are. Would I buy a case of it for $5/bottle. Absolutely!
