2004 Sauvignon Blanc, Russian River Valley – Marino Estate
This vibrant new Crinella Sauvignon Blanc from the Russian River Valley is elegant with exceptional fruit along with citrus and spice. While well chilled, the flavor is crisp and dry, with a beautiful lemony, citrus flavor. As the chill comes off, the bright fruit becomes wonderfully like the flavor of a fresh, crisp apple. Rich, with excellent balance, this wine is perfect served at a casual afternoon gathering and will also be a remarkable feature for a formal dinner.
“This unparalleled wine is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc Clone #1 from cuttings originally taken from Chateau d’ Yquem and Sauvignon Musque, which is extremely aromatic. The Russian River Valley is conducive to producing wines with good fruit, acidity, and finesse. This is an elegant wine, with aromas of citrus, peach, apple, and undertones of flowers and spice. In the mouth, it is quite rich but strikes an excellent balance with the acidity and moves forward with interpretations of peach and fig, which then crescendos to an intense finish!” – Michael Brick, Hi-Time Wines
We’re confident you’ll love our wine with any of your favorite recipes, but want to recommend a couple of our own you may enjoy tasting it with.
For a wonderful afternoon pick-me-up, try this Russian River Valley Sauvignon Blanc with a slice of our Artichoke Frittata – Marion always had one ready for visiting family and friends. We also think it’s the perfect compliment to Chicken Saltimboca which is very elegant and quite easy to prepare.
