Odv_07sauvblanA quick review of a very affordable local sauvignon blanc this Monday morning.

I really liked the 2006 edition of this wine for it's light, easy-drinking style and price. Well, Osprey's Dominion Vineyards' 2007 Sauvignon Blanc ($13) keeps the price down in the "daily drinking" zone and, despite the vastly different growing 2007 growing season, brings very similar aromas and flavors to the table.

Even with the ripe growing season, this isn't a big aggressive sauvignon. Intead, light lemon and grapefruit aromas mingle with golden delicious apple and subtle herbs on a medium-intense nose.

Medium bodied with fresh acidity, the flavors are fairly simple — grapefruit, lemon and kiwi — with just a little herbaceousness. The finish is medium-length with a little minearlity.
