I have had the chance to try several wines from Cimarone Estate Wines 3CV line and I am consistently impressed with the wines they are producing for under $20. Last week I uncorked a bottle of their 2010 Sauvignon Blanc and my taste buds were aroused by the flavors and balance of this Santa Barbara wine.
About the Wine- From the Winery
3CV 2010 Sauvignon Blanc is 100% Sauvignon Blanc from the Happy Canyon AVA of Santa Barbara. It retails for $15.99 and you can find more information at www.cimarone.com
Now the Fun Part- Tasting the Wine
3CV’s Sauvignon Blanc is pleasantly aromatic with notes of sweet peaches, honeydew, and citrus. At first sip, an explosion of spring flavors fills your mouth. There are bright, distinctive tastes of melon and citrus surrounded with healthy acidity. The tangy finish delivers a lasting grapefruit-filled punch. I definitely recommend grabbing a couple of bottles of this nicely priced wine…it’s a great wine to welcome in the spring and summer!
My Wine Rating- A-
Food Pairing Suggestions- Pair this wine with grilled snapper, a salad topped with crab, shrimp, and scallops, or fish tacos.
