Added May 26, 2009 at 3:03pmMineral and petrol notes on nose with some honey. Sweeter style than I expected. Bottle disappeared quickly.

Added May 26, 2009 at 2:51pmGood, not great. A touch too fruity to be taken seriously, but there's some nice strawberry fruit in here. Went well with roasted halibut.

Added May 21, 2009 at 8:43pmCrazy good value. Best $9 white I've tried in a long time. Apple on the nose. Nice minerally but round feel in the mouth.Low alcohol. This is a delicious easy wine. Lemon-lime and brine finish. Please pass the oysters and shrimp cocktail.

Added May 20, 2009 at 9:38pmNot impressed. I keep putting the glass down instead of keeping my nose stuck in it as I tend to do with wines I like. It's not bad, just a bit bland. The nose is pleasant with some sweet spice notes, but the palate is flat. Good tannins though.

Added May 15, 2009 at 8:26pmTons of puckering acidity. This is not for the faint of heart. Very light gold color. Grassy herbaceousness on the nose with some tropical melon flair. Almost like a new world SB. Very upfront, but after a few sips your mouth gets used to the acidity and this is a pretty pleasant drink. Clean, crisp, and refreshing. A bit bitter and drying finish, but what this really needs is some cured meat or biltong.

Added May 8, 2009 at 9:39pmThere's something I always really like about Lynch-Bages and I didn't taste this blind, so I automatically give it high points. This is really young and is not ready to drink. Quite austere right now. Some very dark fruit and leather on the nose. Black cherry on palate, but that's about it. Long, juicy finish with a touch of bitterness.

Added May 8, 2009 at 8:43pm3 of 9 on the sweetness meter on the back of the bottle (the meter starts at 1, not 0 though). A touch of bottle funk immediately on opening the bottle, but this blew off quickly. Some peach on the nose but its a bit muted. The nose makes me expect a fatter wine than this turns out to be. On the palate there's good balance with the acidity matching any residual sugar well. Mid is a bit flat, but the finish livens back up and is very pleasant. This would be great with grilled fish.

Added May 7, 2009 at 7:53pmI don't have the highest opinion of Napa Valley SB's but this one was quite nice. Lemon-lime on the nose with a restrained amount of Sauvignon blanc pungency - enough to keep me entertained. On the palate this wine has pretty good bright fruit and just a touch of flab to let you know its from Napa. Pleasant enough finish.

Added May 4, 2009 at 6:21pmLost tasting notes. Really liked this wine as did fellow diners. Paired really well with a duck and mushroom gumbo.

Added May 1, 2009 at 8:52pmTried the wine pre and post Mollydooker shake. The shaking definitely opens the wine up a lot. Yes, you can trust the seal on the screwcap. This is inky, fruity stuff. I can see this going over amazingly at a party or a bbq but this is not a wine to be drunk in a quiet setting. I will have to revisit in the proper setting.
