Taste profile from the winemaker: "Varietally accurate, this 2006 Sauvignon Blanc opens with vibrant aromas of grapefruit and lemon citrus, with subtle grassy characters. On the palate, this wine does not disappoint with refreshing flavors of grapefruit, lime and lemon, balanced by bright, crisp acidity on the finish. This easy sipping wine makes a perfect aperitif."

ABC Wines review: Mild aromas of tropical fruit are evident upon pouring this sauvignon blanc. It is a reasonably full-bodied wine with citrus flavors and grassy notes accented with herbs. The finish is neither terribly tart or dry, but it is very long-lasting and pleasing. Probably best served with grilled dishes. Our score: Average.

Note: 39° wines are a brand of the Cecchetti Wine Company that also produces Redtree wines.
