2006 Tobin James Sauvignon Blanc Sundance

This wine came in the Fall 2007 shipment from Tobin James, and was enjoyed out on the bistro with leftovers from Under the Moon. As you'll see in my other posts, be sure to check out the Tobin James Gang Reserve wine club. For the price, you just cannot beat it, and his wines are fun as fun can be!
This particular bottle displayed some hints of pear, green apple, and lemon on the nose, which led the palate to a little more of the same, with some subtle hints of grapefruit as well. The finish was very short, but pleasant for what it was.
It's amazing how different California sauvignon blanc's are from the New Zealand sauvignon blanc that we usually drink. You really can taste the difference, but both California and New Zealand are making some high quality wines. From a QPR perspective though, I think New Zealand has the lead.
As far as the Sundance goes, all in all a good wine, and a bargain for under $10, and worthy of 87 points. Cheers!
