A cup o’ kindness - or - OMG this freaking SB is awesome

Tuesday, January 13th, 2009

A couple of weeks ago, my wonderful wife and I went out for a New Year’s Eve dinner with some friends and I was asked to do the honors of ordering wine to go with our seafood meal.

Veramonte Sauvignon Blanc

Veramonte Sauvignon Blanc

I was about to order a favorite of mine (a 2007 Napa Frog’s Leap Sauvignon Blanc) when I decided to stray and try a Chilean.  I figured hey, it’s the New Year and let’s let auld acquaintance be forgot (at least for the night).   So, at the last second, I picked the 2007 Veramonte Sauvignon Blanc Reserva.   An absolutely fortuitous choice, my friends.  Citrusy (grapefruit), dry and crisp.

Do yourself a favor - at $10 / bottle, order yourself a case while you can.  And drink it young (the 2007 is just perfect right now).

Hmmm…I think I’m going to grab a glass right now.
