Wine Review: This Sauvignon Blanc from Cakebread was my favorite from a mini-flight that I recently covered. It is almost clear and opens with a fragrant and classic gooseberry bouquet with a hint of yellow grapefruit. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, slightly acidic, and very juicy. The flavor profile is a very tasty pink grapefruit with hints of Anjou pear. The finish is dry and very refreshing. This really good Sauvignon Blanc went perfectly with our popcorn shrimp appetizer at Legal Sea Foods. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Due to the coolness of the vintage, our 2010 Sauvignon Blanc is especially fresh, crisp and vibrant, offering bright honeydew melon, pink grapefruit, gooseberry and vanilla aromas and rich, mouthwatering, citrus, nectarine and melon flavors. An ideal apèritif wine, it also beautifully accompanies a wide and diverse range of foods, from shellfish and lighter seafood dishes to roast chicken, Caesar Salad and pasta primavera. Enjoy it over the next 1-2 years
