Rodney Strong Charlotte's Home Northern Sonoma 2010 Sauvignon Blanc, $11.04-$14.99, 90 points, is not like any Sauv-Blanc I've tasted! This wine is all about melon, with hints of banana and cantaloupe, but no grass, no cat pee, not even lemon or grapefruit, but it is sweet without being cloying, it is delicious without being complex, and it paired nicely with almost everything, including a Swiss burger. I wouldn't be shy in serving this wine at a barbecue, only expect to go through copious quantities.
The color is very clear with gold notes, the aroma is melon and lichee, the body is light to medium, and the finish is fair on ginger spice.
If you like white wine, cold or warmer, if you like melon verses citrus, then this is a white wine for you.
