We are big fans of the BevMo! 5 cent sale. In case you’re unfamiliar with the sale, you can buy one bottle of wine and get the second for five cents! The first 5 cent wine sale of 2012 is going on right now, featuring over 100 wines with a rating of 90 points or above and 15 different varietals from 11 different countries. If you’re anything like me, you probably want to narrow the choices down. To help, Christopher Nelson, wine expert at the Encinitas Bevmo! store, tells us about his favorites.

Favorite Red In The 5 Cent Wine Sale
Artesa Meritage has a soft cherry and rhubarb notes that are well balanced with sweet earth undertones that carry this 14.5% abv very well. It is wonderfully red blend for $19.99.
Favorite White In The 5 Cent Sale
Pacific Rim Organic Riesling is on the sweeter side of the varietal but not over the top. It has a nice flowery bouquet that leads the way to a pleasantly sweet light wine with notes of tart apple, sweet pear, honeysuckle. $15.99

I gravitate towards wines that are smooth and easy to drink, but also have complex flavors that keep me saying, “I know this flavor now what is it?”
The BevMo 5 cent sale is on until March 18, 2012. However, don’t delay because sometimes favorites run out toward the end of the sale. We know from personal experience. Answers from the La Jolla wine expert are to come!
