Zellerbach Estates 2004 Sauvignon Blanc

Zellerbach Estates Sauvignon Blanc 2004

Taste profile from the winemaker: "Soft, flowery and well balanced, this sauvignon blanc should please every wine drinker's palate."

ABC Wines review: Light, very pleasant aromas of fresh tropical fruit are followed by the smooth, herbaceous and grassy flavors of this sauvignon blanc. Most of the pleasure in this wine is at the front of the mouth; the finish is a bit abrupt. This would be a perfect accompaniment for grilled chicken, steamed broccoli, and farfalle tossed with a bit of olive oil. Our score: Above average.

Note: Zellerbach Estates is part of the McNab Ridge Winery group.
