Debauchery Sauvignon Blanc From Chile

Debauchery 2010 Sauvignon Blanc, $11.99-$13.99, 87 points, is very tart, and should be paired accordingly, sushi comes to mind. The color and nose are typical lemon-grass, but the flavor is quite tart lemon/lime and grapefruit, though the official web-site offers "orange blossom-mango and passion fruit", that's for you to decide. I do find Wineries' descriptions of their wines to be a bit elaborate, and, I suppose, if not them, then who?

So, is being debauched a Halloween trait? Does such a wine qualify?
I'm beginning to wonder why so many wines have names that give wine a "bad" name. Reminds me of High-school days when the guys use to say: "Oh, girls like the guys that mistreat them."
Well, if Debauchery works for your Halloween motif, go for it, but as for what some wineries title their wines, I'm dubious.
