Winesday: Coming Down With a Case of Sauvignon Blanc
We went up to Murphy's last weekend and, as is our habit, came back with some wine. Among other things (and after looting a wine cave with some pirates) (more on that later), we acquired a case of Chatom Vineyards 2007 Sauvignon Blanc, a favorite since we had it in a local restaurant and decided we needed to find this winery. Crisp, well-balance acidity, touch of tropical fruit to start with a mellow finish.* It's an excellent standby, and since the new vintages were coming out soon we were concerned that we might run out, so the prudent thing to do seemed to be to stock up. So we did.
Also, just to be on the safe side, we bought a lot more wine. You never know.
