2015 Domaine Ferret Pouilly-Fuisse (375 ml) Definitely on the riper side of Macon, sweet pear and apple accented with apple blossom and orange zest. Full, sweet chardonnay, good length. Would need to be crisper for me to love, but not bad from a very ripe vintage. B/B+.
2018 Vino Alantico Flaco Tempranillo (Madrid)
Another from restaurant workers relief fund case. Moderate ripeness, soft acids, little tannin, but sweet black plum fruit, only a touch of spiciness to hint at Tempranillo. B-/C+
Grade disclaimer: I'm a very easy grader, basically A is an excellent wine, B a good wine, C
drinkable. Anything below C means I wouldn't drink at a party where it was only choice.Furthermore, I offer no promises of objectivity, accuracy, and certainly not of consistency.
