This is yet another style of wine I have never tried- Retsina from Greece.  This one is pale lemon colored and has a very unique set of aromas.  Resin, pear drop, wet wood, lemon verbena and dare I say it….vomit?  The palate is bone dry with high acidity and a light body.  The flavors are also very unique, starting with that resinous note along with freshly sawed green wood, lemon, pine needles and green pear.  The finish is short to medium in length and tart.  An interesting wine, probably not something I will rush out to replenish but it was worth the try.  I can’t score this $11 offering at this point but you should really get one for yourself.  I am pairing it with tacos, the spices will do well with the dryness and acidity of this unique wine.  Salut….
