2016 Charles Krug Sauvignon Blanc

January 12, 2018 - Norman Bentley

If you are in a quandary about Sauvignon Blanc, never fear for you are not alone. Sauvignon Blanc can be many things to many people,, and the style may vary from bone dry and acidic, to sweet and almost sticky. A Sauvignon Blanc from Bordeaux may be austere and finish with a mineral dryness, while one from New Zealand may taste like a glass of grapefruit juice, and one from California may come across like the fresh cut grass stuck to your lawn mower blade. The Charles Krug St. Helena Sauvignon Blanc from Napa just tastes good!

After all is said and done, let me say that the Krug has a floral bouquet, with an initial burst of big fruit in the flavor, followed by a suggestion of citrus and a touch of grassy minerality, with a crisp dry finish, and with just the right amount of acidity. The wine tastes good and the style is all its own. The alcohol content is 13.4%, and Norm's score is 88.

You can pair this wine with seafood, chicken salad, or a cheese and fruit platter. My choice would be with a big plate of Fettuccine Alfredo, and a baguette of warm French bread.

price: $16 - $19

score - 88
