Good Friday Drinks (Domaine Wine Storage - Chicago, IL): Served blind. I exotic fruit on the nose; coconut, peach, cherry had me thinking White Bordeaux. Palate didn't have the weight or concentration to be White Bordeaux, so I was a bit stumped. When the bottle was revealed it all made sense, but in the moment I couldn't piece it all together. Great acidity and balance to the palate that only improved with air.
A Good Friday (Chicago, IL): Botrytis and gooseberries. What a funky combination. Super rich nose coupled with a racy and green palate makes for a really interesting wine. Racy with good acidity, and a nice mineral tone to it, despite its heavier fruit character. Quite rich, this coats the palate with a thick luscious texture. A well-crafted bottle of sauvignon blanc, if it isn't the most traditional.
light gold w/greenish highlights; pure & precise sauvignon blanc nose - hay, green herbs, lemon zest, wet stone; med++ body; rich & full-on tangy citrus, grapefruit marmalade, tarragon, juicy; definitive mineral spine, long & complete. spot on pairing w/food - one of the best ever. would drink a lot more s.b., if more were like this.
