SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— The 2011 Trione Sauvignon Blanc from the Russian River Valley is one of two delicious wines perfect for spring and summer drinking with its crisp, flinty bouquet.
It’s full of citrus aroma with a fresh herbal back note. You’ll notice those herbal notes stand out as the citrus notes linger on the palate. I’d recommend pairing it with crab, sautéed sole or chicken. To be honest, it’s kind of hard to put the glass down once you take a sip because it’s so delicious and seductive. It’s crisp mineral finish would be perfect with oysters. The cost is only $23.
Another good wine for the season is the 2009 Dry Creek Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. It has a deep, rich garnet color with a combination of cherry and herb aromas.
