2012 Passaggio Unmarked Probable Cause Sauvignon Blanc Lake County
Cindy Cosco nailed Sauvignon Blanc with her 2012 Unmarked Probable Cause offering from Lake County CA. Beautiful layers of fruit both on the nose and in the mouth. A winner of the Silver Medal in the San Francisco International Wine Competition, you will find a wine both smooth and elegant. I told Cindy this may be the finest Sauv Blanc I have tasted. It's selling fast so you better visit the website Passaggio Wine before the juice is gone. Even my novice wine drinking daughters loved it.
On the nose fresh pineapple and grapefruit with a beautiful blend of lemon grass. Tropical melon and lime citrus round out this crisp little devil. Excellent light straw color.
On the mouth tart grapefruit with fresh cut pineapple. Fresh squeezed lemon from start to finish with a nice splash of lime and melon. Powerful fruit yet a soft clean finish. Don't blink or the bottle will be gone.
Priced at $18 per bottle but if you join the Passionistas Wine Club you get each bottle for $14.40. A steal for this award winning juice. Now if you will excuse me my glass needs another splash!
