wine o. wednesday #22

Since the weather is starting to warm up. . .I decided to make the switch to white wines. . .I used to be a big Chardonnay drinker but after finally experience red wines I became a convert. . .but have often thought that in warmer weather a chilled wine would be nice and refreshing. . .hence the reluctant leap to whites. . .

Tonight’s wine was the Cakebread Cellars Sauvignon Blanc. . .I’ve heard good things about the Cakebread Chardonnay and read online that their Sauv Blanc was good and actually found it at the liquor store.

I have to say, I’m not sure I really had it chilled enough to experience this wine to its fullest. . .but I bought another Sauv Blanc for next week and will be sure that it is chilled enough to be enjoyed at the correct temperature.

I’m not sure I am 100% sold on the Sauv Blanc just yet. . .this one was very dry and not quite what I was expecting. . .but if you are a fan of dry wines I would definitely say go for it. I was expecting a fruitier flavor than this wine offered.

Maybe next week’s cheaper version will be more up my alley. . .it will be the BV Coastal Estates Sauvignon Blanc, if you come across a bottle pick it up and drink it with me.
