2014 Chateau Ste. Michelle Sauvignon Blanc

September 23, 2016 - Norman Bentley

It is easy to admit that we all have favorite wines, which we are always eager to sample as the vintages change. The last time I wrote about this favorite, it was the 2011 vintage. So, as we prepared our pan seared scallops for dinner, I had great anticipation for the the Horse Heaven Sauvignon Blanc we were having with the scallops. Chateau Ste. Michelle has rarely let me down in the past, and once again was up to the task of turning a good dinner into a memorable one.

The 2014 Horse Heaven Hills Sauvignon Blanc is clear, and a pretty pale golden in color, and has a wonderful bouquet of citrus and golden delicious apples. The flavors are robust and smack of apple, melon, and a mild citrus breeze with a tangy light spritz in the background. The finish is crisp and underscores a complex wine for simple tastes. The alcohol content is 13%, and Norm's score is 89.

This wine was excellent with our scallops as it would be with almost any seafood dish. This wine has a fresh crisp appeal which would be a perfect companion for a platter of fresh fruit and soft cheeses. Once again, kudos to Chateau Ste. Michelle.

price : $14- $18

score: 89
