Parkers Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2005

Parkers Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2005
Origin: Sonoma County California
Blend: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
Alcohol content: 13.5%
Bottle closure: Natural cork
Purchase date: September 2007
Purchase price: $11.99

Taste profile from the winemaker: "This Sauvignon Blanc exhibits flavors of grapefruit and rich melon from warmer areas resulting in a wine with exquisite balance, pairs well with fish and light salad dishes."

ABC Wines review: Sweet fruit scents barely mask the alcohol aromas from this rather disappointing sauvignon blanc that tends more towards the fume blancs (somewhat inexplicably) favored by California vintners. The wine lacks complexity and is flat though the finish is dry. Not a sipping wine, but should pair reasonably well with something rich and creamy. Our score: Below average, especially for the price paid.
