From the bottle:

Today we have another Reverse Wine Snob Certified Summertime Sipper™*. Summertime sippers come in many different shapes and sizes, but they hold one thing in common – they are perfect for relaxing on the patio at the end of hot and sunny day. Some of the others we’ve highlighted recently include:



The 2011 Domaine du Tariquet Classic Cotes de Gascogne begins with aromas of light tropical fruit, tangerine and other citrus, some floral notes and a touch of grass. The wine tastes refreshing and crisp and features lots of rich and tart citrus and tropical fruit. It also has a very nice almost oily yet still lively mouthfeel. At the end mineral notes underneath the tart fruit bleed into the medium-long finish. A really great wine for only $8, a Reverse Wine Snob Certified Summertime Sipper™* and a Bulk Buy!
