Wise Guy Sauvignon Blanc 2009

another owen roe selection, this sauv blanc is from the outlook vineyard in the yakima valley in oregon. the nose is fresh hay and mineral notes along with some citrus notes. on the palate a nice burst of citrus, with lemon and some lime zest. very nice mineral crispness to this as well, with wet stone notes coming through. sells for about $13 and will work really well with some scallops or other seafood dishes. or makes for a nice patio pounder on a hot summer day.

FYI - The Yakima Valley is in Washington State, it was in fact the first AVA in Washington State and is now part of the larger Columbia Valley AVA.
