Clos Du Bois North Coast Sauvignon Blanc 2010

Finally have some time to spend on the patio, grilling up some BBQ chicken and enjoying some refreshing white wines.  For the past few years this meant stocking up on my favorite Rieslings, but today I decided on a California wine from Clos Du Bois.  The Clos Du Bois North Coast Sauvignon Blanc 2010($15).

Everything about this wine was very enticing.  A very bright and light color with a touch of green started this wine out on a positive note.  Then the fantastic aromas of lime and grapefruit with a little bubble gum and honeysuckle on the nose.  The wine was very refreshing in the mouth with nice acidity and soft fruit flavors with just a hint of citrusy lemon.  The finish was very long and very refreshing, especially on a Central New York 90°F day.  Inexpensive summer wine that paired exceptionally well with both the BBQ chicken and grilled mild sausage.

*Also would like to note that beginning with this post, Shirley will now be my blogs photographer.  For her recent birthday, Pam and I presented her with a new Canon EOS Rebel t3 and she is having a blast using it.  I just have to make any photo adjustments using my new (Shirley's old) Kodak printer.
