2009 Chalone Sauvignon Blanc, Monterey County

Light straw color. The pungent nose delivers varietal aromas of sweet pea, field herbs, light pineapple, passion fruit and citrus blossom, along with a note of vanilla. The nose gains intensity and focus with aeration. Sassy acidity leads to a pleasing sweet-tart mouthfeel that stays through to the juicy, fruit-driven finish. A great patio wine or summer sipper and a super value, considering it originally was priced at around $17. Drink up!
