Titus Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc, 2008

From their tasting notes:  “..refreshing aromas of lemon, stone fruits, pineapple, melon, minerals and floral notes which all carry through to the palate.  The Wine’s elegant, crisp acidity is balanced, and although its style is light and lively, the lees aging resulted in a supple, alluring mouth-feel that lingers and evolves into tropical fruits throughout the medium length finish..”

I tasted the wine without referring to their literature first and then compared my notes with theirs.

I picked up on the pineapple and melon right away, as well as the supple mouthfeel.  There was a slight hint of lemon and the acidity was crisp.  But did I like it?  Actually, yes I did.  Which is a little unusual for me as I have spent the last 16 years drinking a LOT of Shiraz.   I could imagine sipping this wine  in the mid afternoon on the porch with friends,  snacking on light creamy cheeses and grapes, maybe some french bread.  The retail price on this is about $20 which is not that expensive considering they only made 380 cases.
