Kendall-Jackson Vintner's Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2010

I really don't know why I did this, because I have enough California wines to finish my two weeks of Super Bowl preparation of CA only wines. "GO NINERS."  Shirley picked up a nice filet of Steelhead Trout for dinner and I was out of my California white wines, so we stopped at one of our favorite small wine shops to pick one up.  One bottle of a California white was all I wanted, but we did end up leaving with an assorted box of wine.  One of these was a Kendall-Jackson Vintner's Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2010.($12).  I uncorked this wine as soon as we arrived home and about a hour later, Shirley cooked up the trout with some fries and steamed spinach.  A perfect meal for an aromatic Sauvignon Blanc.
Aromas of grapefruit, some tropical fruits and lots of floral, orange blossom and honeysuckle on the nose.  Flavors were of pear, tropical fruits and pineapple leading to a nice but short finish.  The food pairing was excellent, but sipping afterward was outstanding.  This is an almost perfect summer wine to just lay back and enjoy on it's own.  Very Highly Recommended.
