2009 McNab Ridge Sauvignon Blanc, Mendocino, CA, $14 (S) – Rating 88
A winemaker once told me about Sauvignon Blanc, “grapefruit should be left on the breakfast table,” and I agree. McNab Ridge Sauvignon Blanc is rich and round with flavors of honeydew, pineapple and creme with no mouth puckering grapefruit. In the glass this wine opens and softens into a crisp yet round mouth-feel. Just a great summer patio sipper value.
