He said: Chilled before drinking. Clear, with a pale lemon color that had a golden glow in the glass. Just the tiniest hint of citrus aroma. Medium body and slightly oily mouth-feel; tart lemon and tropical fruit taste that continued through the medium-long, slightly bitter mineral finish. Enough acidity that it paired well with the cherry tomatoes in the dinner; but, the lack of aroma and pedestrian character put it in the “OK” category drinking without food after the dinner. At only $12.60 we would recommend it, but call it a “Not Bad” Sauvignon Blanc.
She said: Almost clear, slightly golden color with evenly spaced, fat, slowly moving legs. Although the aroma was so mild I couldn’t smell it, the first sensation in the mouth was the tartness that identified it as Savignon Blanc. The wine was smooth, slightly sweet, medium bodied and just acidic enough to complement the dinner. The finish was long and ended with a slight grapefruit tartness. It paired well with the dinner and was a bargain wine at $12.60!
