Cornerstone Cellars 2009 Sauvignon Blanc


HE and SHE both say: Well, we’ll be darned — this is Cornerstone Cellars first ever sauvignon blanc — and not only that, it’s their first ever white wine!  Whoa!   After 18 vintages, they gave Sauvignon Blanc a try and they mastered it, of course.  We served this one with appetizers of goat cheese, an exquisite Epoisse (a cheese to live for), various salamis and olives.

HE SAYS: I enjoy a nice, approachable sauv blanc and this wine was just that.  It’s easy drinking, with notes of citrus, straw and tropical fruits.  It was crisp and clean, and would really complement fish and seafood.  We had it with an assortment of appetizers — it went very well with goat cheese as many sauv blancs do.   I gave it a very good score of 14+.

SHE SAYS: Clear as a bell!  Ding!  Cornerstone, you’re getting very interesting — aren’t you?

HE and SHE both say: Read about Cornerstone’s care and romancing of this grape from dry-farmed vines over at the Talcott vineyard in St. Helena  right here.

SHE has one more final say: Please be sure to designate a driver when you are drinking wine.  Thank you.  The life you save, might be mine.
