I tasted this at Les Marchands and it reminded me of my favorite Αγιωργίτικο, Λαλούδι, so much that I had to buy what they said was their last bottle (@ $45). Having it now with home made fresh pasta and heritage pork ragout. Life does not suck.

Another effort at finding a killer Sauv Blanc to go with food. This one actually accompanied two recent ambitious dishes to excellent effect: lobster and English pea pasta and sous vide & cast iron seared fennel + local halibut. It's been the bomb! I'm getting into this :)

Sauv Blanc is a bit tough for me, frequently tasting green or otherwise off, so I went to the higher end of the moderate price spectrum, and I really like this Justin SB. It seems that my maxim that good wine makers make good wine holds in this case, as Justin's Isosceles is considered something of a canonical mid-price bottle around SB.

I've driven by Sunstone a twenty times and never had their wine, but SBSC kindly rewarded me for some volunteering I did with a bottle of this Soleil Blanc, and it's the most memorable white I've had in a while, so I wanted to make a note of it.
