Tin Roof Sauvignon Blanc 2005

Tin Roof Sauvignon Blanc 2005
Origin: North Coast California
Blend: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
Alcohol content: 13.5%
Bottle closure: Screw cap
Purchase date: December 2007

Taste profile from the winemaker: "... offers layers of bright, juicy, citrus fruit
flavors that gain elegance from a refreshing, underlying minerality. It’s an ideal match for lighter seafood dishes, roasted chicken, Caesar salad and mildly spiced Asian cuisines."

ABC Wines review: Crisp and clean describe this effort by the vintners of Murphy Goode wines. The mineral notes are nicely balanced by fruit and vegetal flavors and the finish is quite smooth. Though it lacks the fresh grassiness typical of this varietal, it is certainly among the best of these wines from California and a fine choice for everyday dining. Our score: Above average to excellent.
