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.
