Nobilo Sauvignon Blanc 2009

Nobilo Sauvignon Blanc 2009
A very light sauvignon blanc on the start but a long, fruitful finish. The citrus isn’t overwhelming and the light, crisp nature really makes this a nice selection. Lemon is the main flavor in that lasting finish but tart apple hints keep this interesting. Much like a Corona with lime, the first 5 taste great, but after a while you need to change it up after the citrus takes over.

With a thunderstorm knocking out our power, I was happy to have this chilled and ready to help ride the storm out.

We found this wine at Costco for $9. It was rated 87 points by someone with a better palatte than I. I’ll be grabbing a few more bottles of these on my next visit. 7/10; great price.
