2007 Fuerza Blancos

Also 4$. A blend of Chardonnay and Torrontes. This wine is a lot better than the malbec from last night. Pears, with slightly green aromas. This wine has good acidity and body, but a short finish. It's pretty good for 4$. Not complex, but certainly not that bad. I would opt for this over the red every day of the week. B-/C+

I have tried the Malbec but the Fuerza 2006 Tempranillo is the best. complex, tannic, old world style Tempranillo tastes like it is from the Rioja... I don't know if you bought the Fuerzas from Trader Joe's but this one should also available for $3.99

Yeah, bought them both at TJ's. If I see the Rioja, I'll pick it up and try it.

I agree--it's an interesting wine but I probably wouldn't go for it at a higher price. I quoted you on my own review here.
