2008 Silverado Vineyards Miller Ranch Sauvignon Blanc: Grapefruity and crisp

jan. 1, 2012: this has to be the first pure sauvignon blanc i've had in six or so months. i got it for our new year's eve party but i ended up not having much of it at all. when i opened it that night, it wasn't chilled, and the grapefruit flavors weren't pronounced. it even had some peach overtones. but tonight, i chilled it, and the grapefruit is really overwhelming. i could see this going well with a salad with vinaigrette dressing and maybe some goat cheese, since the acidic dressing and flat texture of the cheese would probably neutralize the grapefruit flavor and crisp textures. greg didn't like this at all, by the way, and the grapefruit was the reigning reason. 13.7 percent alcohol. winetree. about $16.
