Duckhorn vineyards presents one of the most interesting Sauvignon Blancs I've tasted yet.
Duckhorn Napa Valley 2010 Sauvignon Blanc, $26.99-$29.99, 92 points, with 25% Sémillon this is a White Wine most everywhere else as I understand it and is similar in style to White Bordeaux. This wine is delicious, it is round, aromatically floral as well as citrus (Lemon) with some fresh-cut grass, it is bright and complex, easy to drink, yet a sipper of a wine, perfectly pair-able (We had this with Smoked Paprika French Fries and Blue cheese on crisp celery and fire-hot buffalo wings. Note that the wine was tasted first, and not to confuse the fine long peppery finish with our cuisine.
To the price ($26.99): Want something special? Then that's what you pay for. Whenever my son visits, it is always special. Ben, that means you too!
