2009 Vie di Romans "Piere" Sauvignon Blanc 375ml (Previously $23)
The nose on this is phenomenal, with intense sliced peaches. Full body and loads of fruit with a long flavorful finish. Drink now.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2009 Sauvignon Blanc Piere Sauvignon literally explodes with tons of energy and focus. Pears, green apples, white peaches, mint and sage are some of the notes that flow from this mid-weight, nicely delineated Sauvignon. Smoke, ash and slate develop later, adding further complexity to the generous, inviting finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019.
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Good, medium-dark straw-yellow. Pungent aromas of gooseberry, flint and grass, with bell pepper and menthol nuances emerging with air. Enters supple, rich and round, then shows a slight hard edge to the grass, mineral and melon flavors. Finishes dry and persistent but with some alcoholic warmth. 90?
Fresh and lightly juicy, this offers flavors of green melon, pink grapefruit, spice and quince. Well-balanced, with a stone-tinged finish. Drink now through 2015.
