Good Sauvignon Blanc with a little extra. Update: OK, I guess I ought to explain what the "extra" is. A lot of the SB's I've drank over the last year or two have felt like summer sippers -- light, crisp and acidic with lemon, melon or grapefruit flavors. There's some of all of that in this one but there's a little more. I don't know Semillon or Muscadet well enough to know which it is that's bringing this (could be both) but I also get something a little more... full? warm? earthy? I thought of Viognier for just a second -- honey, maybe. Anyway, this is worth drinking again.

Actually, quite a nice bottle, age is key with this one. Five years or more is highly recommended, as this fine Bordeaux defines well the saying "that wine is better with age". 2 and 3 year old bottles can be bought for $15 - $20, then store it in your wine cellar for a couple years. 5 year old bottles will then easily sit in the company of $60 - $80 bottles and hold it's own - that's quite a value!

Wine Tasting NotesCabernet Sauvignon 45%, Merlot 30%, and Cabernet Franc 25%. Pale, pink salmon in color. Notes of white flowers, citrus and ripe fruit on the nose. The palate is well balanced, rich and tasty, with a little bit of licorice on the finish.
