Not understanding what the problem is, SP. It is not hard to find California Sauvignon Blancs on retail store shelves.
I'd never heard of Little Rascals Sauvignon Blanc--that is not particularly useful information for you, because I have an amazing lack of knowledge, period, let alone about specific wines--so I ran off to my friend Mr. Google and learned a bit. It turns out that the 2013 Little Rascals SB was awarded a Bronze Medal in the Sauvignon/Fume Blanc under $14 category of the 2012 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. Here is a link to the complete listing of award winners for the category. Most of these wines are pretty easy to find in retail stores, although I cannot speak for your geography. I would suggest that you look for some of these. My guess is that you will fine something similar, or, perhaps serendipitously, you might find one with a different profile that you also enjoy.

Why not try a sauvignon blanc from the Loire valley .I can recommend the Domaine de Villargeau from the Coteaux de Giennois which I reviewed for Snooth a little while ago and which I thought was a superb example of the grape

Thanks for the info. I found the winery contact phone but it is only open Mon-Fri so I'll try and call them tomorrow. The wine is for my wife who hates sweet wine and this particular wine she loved. I am fond of wine but I usually opt for a good iced down long neck beer as it is very hot here in South Texas. That being said I am allowed to steal a sip from her glass just to make sure it is ok. I try to keep our wine cooler filled and the bar stocked with her favorites so i'll continue my search for little rascals. Thanks again for your help.
