Picked up this pretty bottle at Whole Foods in Napa for $8 and liked it very much.

i thought this blogger said it perfectly

'I am trying to think of a celebrity to compare this wine to…. Reese Witherspoon! Likeable, cute, petite, sort of dainty, but not annoying and cheesy like some little blonde petite celebrities. Of which there are plenty. Reese has substance, and so does Opala."

While I will be the first to admit on a scale to 1 to 10 my expertise is zero, vihno verde is an exception. I went thru a Portugal phase a while back and tried every bottle I could find.

    Can you compare this to the Espiral Vinho Verde at Trader Joe's for $5.99 (I think)?
