Dudes Check out Sauv Blanc for Thanksgiving
This is the third of six videos on wines for Thanksgiving. If you haven't been following along, it's simply some guys who like wine and talking about their wine choices.
It shows how easy it is to get together and enjoy wines with friends. Here is the schedule we're following:
Wednesday: Sauvignon Blanc
Friday: Pinot Noir, California Central Coast
Saturday: Pinot Noir, Oregon
Tonight, we are tasting a traditional Sauvignon Blanc blend. This one comes from Clif Family Winery in California. This is a really nice clean-tasting wine that oenophiles will enjoy with the Turkey.
It's known as the The Climber White. It is 80 percent Sauv Blanc with 13 percent Pinot Gris, 5 percent Riesling, 1 percent Pinot Meunier, and 1 percent Muscat.
The grapes come from Napa Valley though I may have said Lake County, to the north, in the video. The winery is near St. Helena in the northern area of Napa.
This wine retails for $12 - a really great buy. This bottle was a trade sample.
Be sure to check back the next three nights when we move to red wines and the fifth "dude" joins the tasting.
