Sunset Rd.Vintners Independent Producers Sauvignon Blanc 2004 wine review by (PB)

I never heard of this wine before but found it on close out for $6. It is a Washington State wine from Columbia Valley and with their reputation for solid wines, I grabbed it.

It is a very pale golden wine with varietal aromas on the front but unique aromas behind. It is a sweet bouquet with tropical fruit hints and lemon. Very nice!

In the mouth this wine is solidly acidic in all the best ways (a good food wine) off dry with flavors of cream and lemons and maybe tart green apples. Finish is quite nice and at the price I paid for it is a super bargain. At four years old, this wine should be on its way out or gone but it is still very youthful and vibrant. I suspect this wine probably runs normally around the $10 price point. If you're a fan of S. Blanc, this is worth hunting down. Raise a glass!
