Well, to the wine: Diogenes has a beautiful crystal-clear transparent golden color.
It has a lemon-grass, toasty wood, vanilla, and hints of caramel aroma.
While cold the texture seemed a bit thin, but became creamier as it warmed.
The aroma nicely carried over onto my palate, but there was a sour note almost bitter which was a bother. This was overall a nice wine which grew on me with a long ginger-pepper finish. I did not find any overdone grassiness, and would at $11.70 recommend this Sauv-Blanc.
For those who care about the décor, I found this bottle and the label to be very attractive and thought how nice it appeared on the dinner table.
