2007 Ceviche Sauvignon Blanc

This Monterey county Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp refreshing summer wine that I believe would be brilliant with the actual cuisine it's name suggests (Ceviche!). Ceviche, for those of us foreign to this wonderful dish, is a traditional Latin American seafood soup or salad that usually contains either fish, shrimp, lobster, or a mix of all these seafood's, coupled with onion, tomato, cilantro, lime, and oil. Traditionally the fish isn't cooked with heat but rather with the acid from the key lime squeezed into the dish.

Anyways, now that I've gotten off the subject of wine I will return to what I though about as I tasted this crisp California Sauvignon Blanc. On the nose this wine displays aromas of pear, green apple, citrus, grapefruit, and a touch of grassiness. It is the typical aromatic profile of lots of California SB's.

On the palate this wine is simple, crisp, and refreshing, and shows flavors of lemon-lime, mineral, and wet concrete. A very simple wine with enough acidity and simplicity to pair with the already flavorful dish that is mentioned in it's title. 85+ points
