Our featured wine of the week:
Our featured wine of the week is the 2004 Patricia Green Cellars Sauvignon Blanc. Bright, citrus fruit is handsomely underscored with notes of herbs and grass. This is flat-out classy winemaking, with food friendly acids and the wine’s citrus/melon fruit playing well against the herbaceous finish. A real gem and by far Patty’s best Blanc she has produced! - $18.50 (while it lasts).
