Seville sparkler

Barboursville Brut (Virginia) – White grapefruit and green watermelon rind, bouncing between sweet and dry. Pretty decent, though it gets a little plasticky near the end. (7/12)


[label]Barboursville Brut (Virginia) – Goofily pleasant, but standing up to absolutely no scrutiny, with it’s simple-minded fruit fresh enough for mindless quaffing only. If attention is paid, it tastes overly sweet for its raw materials. With a little more effort, though, I think there could be something more serious here. (1/08)
