Wine Wednesday

ahhh perhaps i smell a new weekly feature coming along!
since i'm not cool enough to have random followers, you all know that i am a wine-o. an EXTREME {cheap, tasty, did i mention cheap?} wine enthusiast, if you will. (Thanks, Papi)

usually, i indulge on the cheaper side (pregames don't call for classy broads), but occasionally i'll mooch off Papi for an nicer bottle...

anyway, this week i'll start with my very favorite.

Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc - a constant value and a constant top 100 wine from Wine Spectator.
i found this last week at Costco for 11.95 a bottle, genius.

Tasting Notes from their website:

Tasting Notes

Pale green. (what?!?! i'm sorry, it's pale yellow. it appears pale green in the bottle)

Lifted aromatics of tropical fruits combined with the traditional nettle and herbaceous aromas of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. (grapefruity goodness)

Firm acidity is surrounded by tropical fruits and herbaceous notes with hints of citrus sneaking in. A whopping mouthful of Marlborough.

Ready to drink now, however this wine will continue to develop for 2-3 years.

Good to drink with anyone at anytime. Ideally suited to asparagus, oysters and summer salads. (ideally suited for ALL DAY EVERY DAY!!)

while i LOVE Kim Crawford, I am partial to any sauvignon blanc from the Marlborough District of New Zealand :)
