Like Old Faithful – Something You Can Rely On

Ever have one of those days when nothing seems to go your way?  I’ve had a few of them over the years.  Turns out today was another one of those challenges – from a difficult commute to unpleasant developments at work, and so on.  I won’t bore you with the details.  But it’s on this kind of day when I’ve had my fill of surprises that I don’t want a wine “adventure” when I’m winding down at home.  I want something I can rely on.  That’s when I reach for a consistent performer like the Geyser Peak winery and their Sauvignon Blanc.

Winemaker:  Geyser Peak
Varietal:  Sauvignon Blanc
Vintage:  2013
Appellation:  California
Price:  $10.99

Notes:  The hue of this one was an extremely pale yellow.  In the bouquet I detected scents of tropical fruit, citrus and grass.  Acidity was lively, alcohol was at 13%, and heft on the tongue was light.  Flavors I tasted included citrus, pear, grass, and a hint of banana.  I’m happy to say that I found it an enjoyable glass of Sauvignon Blanc.  What about you?
