Hess Select Sauvignon Blanc 2008, Lake County, Calfornia - $9

Hess Select's 2008 Sauvignon Blanc is 100% Sauv Blanc and retails for $9/bottle at the Austin Wine Merchant.

Aroma - tropical fruit, rubber tires, hot!
Taste - bitter grapefruit

The alcohol content of this wine is 14.5%. No wonder it smells so hot! I'm not a huge fan of this wine. The Pedroncelli Sauvignon Blanc 2008 is much better, and a much better bargain. I like my Sauv Blancs tropical and acidic, but not bitter.
