xmatt's Product Reviews
I am a HUGE fan of Sauvignon Blancs and have to admit that I really wanted to like this one as well with its 93 pt rating. However, the wine's taste was pretty boring and unimpressive. The wine also had an odd slight carbonation to it with many small bubbles that persisted throughout the bottle. Maybe I just got a bad bottle, but wanted to let everyone know.
My wife and I discovered this wine 3 years ago and have loved every vintage since. We have always loved this wine because of its crisp, light, grapefruity, and earthy taste. It is very pleasantly different from other Sauvignon Blancs out there and is GREAT for summer. Always a great value, this year's vintage is not quite as good as last year's (as the professional ratings indicate) but it is still VERY worth your time.
When I can find wine as well rated and cheap as this one from from 2001, I backed the truck up and loaded up. I served this wine to my wife and friends and everyone enjoyed it as a smooth and well balanced wine, however it was nothing super. If you are looking for a bargain priced, extremely balanced and mellow red, then this is your wine. If you want something that will knock your socks off, keep looking. Hope this helps! -Matt
