2005 - Santa Carolina Sauvignon Blanc Reserva
Good

I thought this was much better than the previous reviewer.  It's not the best wine I've ever had but, it was crisp and enjoyable with the salmon we had for dinner.  I wouldn't buy case, but if someone was pouring I wouldn't turn it away.

This was as bad as the 2005 and it just goes to show that this producer cannot make sav blanc or isn't trying very hard.  Metallic taste really kills everything else, but there are some oak chips and butter spray in there as well. PASS!

BIG PASS!

Big Pass. I'm a huge fan of sauvignon blanc, but found this undrinkable. Strong petrol odors (not in a good way) and bitter taste left me no choice but to pour it down the sink and apologize to the local water treatment facility. Yeah it's like that.

I would say pass not because it's bad but because it's not interesting enough.  Basic melon fruit that falls somewhat flat, surrounded by oak and alcohol.  Ok but not great.

Mushrooms?

This had an interesting nose of muchrooms and chalk to me.  The mushrooms weren't on the palate but the chalk was, surrounded by vanilla oak and light lemon zest.

This was my favorite of the Santa Carolina wines I tasted at a tasting their distributor put on at my local wine shop.  I would still say that this was a pass, but not as big a miss as the other wines of this vintage.  Somewhat refreshing on the palate is the biggest plus.
