One of my favorite parts of summer has quickly become the “Concerts in the Park” in Dana Point. The weather is almost always perfect as a great band takes the stage with the ocean glistening in the background. Every Sunday, we head out with a group of friends and some great wine and cheese to enjoy the show. This past weekend I brought along a bottle of 3CV’s newest Estate Sauvignon Blanc. It turned out to be a great wine for a warm, summer afternoon!
This refreshing Sauvignon Blanc opens up with aromas of lemon and lime. The palate has a bit of a rich mouth feel showing flavors of pear and sweet melon with hints of citrus and stone fruit. There is also a nice dose of acidity that elevates the palate. A lovely wine for a summer day! (13.1% alcohol, $18)
My Wine Rating – B+
Food Pairing Suggestions – Pair with grilled mahi mahi topped with mango salsa, fish tacos, or sip as an aperitif.
