Wine Review: This pale straw colored Sauvignon Blanc from Washington State is a steal for $10. It opens with an apple bouquet with a hint of strawberry and burnt match. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is Bosc pear with notes of faint minerality and a touch of lime and gentle yellow grapefruit. The finish is dry and rather refreshing. I would serve this Sauvignon Blanc with swordfish kabobs. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: Sauvignon Blanc is one of the most dynamic grapes grown in Yakima Valley. When fully ripe it still has the hallmark acidity and fragrance of world class versions. The Outlook Vineyard is the source of this fruit. Planted in 1982, the vines yield perfectly ripe fruit that has fully ripe flavors, plenty of minerality, with tremendous natural acidity Pair this bright, refreshing wine with oysters on the half shell, sauteed scallops or a mixed green salad with Chevre and a citrus vinaigrette.
