La Marquise Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Purchased from Lot 18/The Tasting Room IMG_0961 2.jpg

Aaron: There are a decent amount of minerals throughout this bottle.  White bark and light olives smothered cantaloupe on the nose.  The flavor is super dry and slightly tangy.  This is not fruity at all and almost bitter.  Definitely not my favorite and reminds me of sour pineapple.  85 points

Teri: Light lemon and melon nose and citrus flavors in the wine with mellow acidity. Mineral and honey add some additional complexity. It had good long flavor and is still light and crisp. Enjoyable.  90 points.

Aaron: White stone fruits make for a crisp and clean nose, while the flavor is light and a bit tangy.  Lots of lemon zest and citrus flavors – not as sweet as the nose implied.  Some olive branches in the background with mushrooms but really mostly lemon.  88 points

Teri: Abundant peach with a little apricot on the nose. Flavors of papaya and nectarine with just a little citrus on the finish. Good flavors overall, my only critique is that is tastes slightly watered down. Overall solid white wine. 89 points

Aaron: Toasted cedar and nutmeg flowered into a hint of brown sugar on the nose of this white.  The flavor was mild and mellow, light but not watered down, and featured a good balance of fruit and nuts.  This wasn’t sweet, nor was it dull.  I felt it was overall a pretty solid wine with some apricot and melon flavors which would compliment most foods.  91 points

Teri: I found this wine different and interesting. The smell of lemongrass and cantaloupe on the nose is a little misleading because the flavors I tasted within the bottle were quite different. Within the wine, I tasted chestnut, lemon, sage, and some stone fruit. Overall the flavors sit wonderfully in the middle of your palate and there is a nice balance between herb and fruit flavors. This wine is not overwhelming in fruity flavors (so if that is what you like, you may want to stay away from this one) but rich in flavor overall. I wonderful bottle to try and one I would enjoy again. 90 points 

 

Quinton Estates Sauvignon Blanc 2013 Reserve

Quinton Sauv Blanc NapaPurchased from Cost Plus World Market, $15.99


Aaron:  This is a great white wine!  Lemon and green apple smell with a full and creamy flavor; much more full than expected for the varietal.  There was a surprising amount of alcoholic residue which was a bit harsh but also a ton of vanilla and pear with white, fleshy fruits which were firm and crisp.  91 points

Teri: This sauvignon blanc is warm and inviting. I was impressed by how easy this wine was to drink but still carried an abundance of flavor. I tasted flavors of nectarine and other stone fruits with a hint of warm honey and vanilla. For the price, this wine is a great buy and will please novice and expert wine lovers alike. 93 points 

Sol Y Luna Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Splash Wines, $13.99Sol Y Luna 2014


Aaron: This very bright wine featured yellow peaches and nectarines on the nose with some red raspberry and honey undertones.  The flavor had a bit too much lime for me with some palm trees and sandy beaches making for a tropical, but heavy-citrus experience.  The flavor concluded with grapefruit which would be great for sangria or if you want something with some zing.  89 points

Teri: This Sauvignon Blanc from Chile is unique and refreshing.  A fruity nose of cantaloupe and honeydew make way to a taste that is a bit different but refreshing. The flavors were full of honey, orange citrus, and almond with a long lingering aftertaste. 90 points
