St. Supery 2008 Sauvignon Blanc

St. Supery 2008 Sauvignon Blanc, $15.99-$19.99, 90 points, is a delightfully grapefruit dominated wine (Light Lemon-grass is typical). This wine has the light lemon/lime color of White grapefruit, the aroma of White grape fruit, and the over-powering flavor of. . . with hints of tangerine, the subtleties of a good Sauvignon Blanc, it is crisp and refreshing, and the finish is, you guessed it, White grapefruit, all the way into the next life.
I have heard it said that grapefruit flavors were, in the recent past, much sought-after, and as soon as I opened this St Supery, that is what I thought. So if you still like that not-so-old trend, $15.99 is a good buy, but the 2008 may not be around anymore; let me know the trends of 2009 and 2010.
Went well with corn-on-the-cob, roasted chicken, and Red-potato salad.
Just in case you (my enthusiastic wine lovers) don't read the comments, Bill Rosich's-, did leave a "vertically" interesting comment.

  1. Nice note. Sounds just like every bottle of St. Supery S.B. I've had going back to vintages in the early 90s! Consistently delicious and they've done a nice job of holding the prices down, too. I think I was paying $12 or so for this wine 15-20 years ago.

  2. Bill, thanks for the info, and I did note it in the "body" of the blog.

  3. Tonight, I had two other wine tasters tell me that they agreed with Bill; one was more pleased than the other, but both were close in their opinions of just how "good' this wine is.
