2005 Bogle Sauvignon Blanc

Operating here in the $10-20 range of everyday wines, Bogle has never let me down, and I'm always eager to try out new varieties as they appear on the shelf. For instance, I recently noticed and picked up a bottle of the 2005 Bogle Sauvignon Blanc. Monterey and Amador Counties, California, $10. The website suggests a citrus profile, but I found it missing tart, citric notes on the nose and palate. Instead there was a lovely aroma of peach, with smooth, well rounded, fruity but still dry flavor. Light and refreshing, and almost perfectly clear. Great summertime wine. I had a glass with some chicken enchiladas accompanied by plenty of hot sauce.

Dear Benito
My name is Sorin Mihailovici and I live in Edmonton, Canada. I have been working in a major liquor store here for the last five years and I could say I am a big wine enthusiast! I just came across your blog and I am glad I found it. It seems like you put a lot of work into it.
While working in my liquor store, I also decided to go to school - I am a student now taking TV productions at one of the most prestigious colleges in Western Canada, Grant MacEwan College.
Trying to mix my two passions I have created a couple of short movies - one is a minute and a half long, the other one 59 sec. The fist one is called "How to Remove Red Wine Stains" and the other one is "Open a bottle of wine without a corkscrew". Although they are short I put several hours of work into them.
If you have a couple of free minutes please take a look at them. If you like them maybe you could post them on your blog up for a discussion (maybe as a topic idea), I would really like to know people's opinion. (underneath every movie there is the embed code - copy and paste it on your blog so people could just click on it...)
If you don't like them I apologize for taking you the time to read my message.
Regardless of your answer - thank you and I will see you on your blog!
There are my movies:

Thank you,

P.S. If you copy and paste the embed code (and not only the link) along with your text then the video will show up right in your article and will look good. The advantage is that your blog will be featured by my movie so your blog itself will get more views. Make sure that after you watch the movie you press the "Blog/Embed player" - a small grey button under the movie screen, check the small box "Feature my blog here" and then copy and paste the embeddable player code into your article.
