    November 22, 2013 - for under $6 you seriously could not go wrong with this one... nice dryness to it, flavor profile wasn't anything crazy, but it was very drinkable!

    February 22, 2013 - Ugh. Can I give this negative points? This was absolutely horrible. I don't expect greatness from a $6 bottle of cava, but something drinkable would be nice. About the only positive thing I can say about this wine is that the bubbles were active and lively. Popping the bottle released marginally inoffensive aromas. To be honest, it was pretty bland and nothing stood out. On the palate, however, this was an abomination. The best description of the taste I can come up with is a mixture of sweaty gym socks and Listerine, followed by an awful moldy lunchmeat aftertaste that lingers and lingers. Throughout the night, this wine only got worse. After a couple of hours, the smell had mutated into this vile combination of windex and bobcat piss. All was not lost however. I found a recipe to make this wretched wine somewhat palatable:

    6 oz. tequila
    8 oz. L'Origan cava
    8 oz. apple juice

    Directions:
    1. Pour the tequila into 4 shot glasses.
    2. Drink the tequila shots
    3. Mix the cava & juice in a pint glass.
    4. Pretend the mixture is a crappy hard cider while you drink it.

    January 21, 2013 - For $6 paid I did quite well. This quite serious and dry with nice bitter note throughout. I can see it working extremely well on a hot summer day. Made great Bellinis.
