Tyler Florence Sauvignon Blanc Blend #4

July 24, 2013

20130724-055502.jpg Over the years, I have really come to enjoy Sauvignon Blanc. I think it pairs beautifully with a host of foods, as well as just having it by the glass, solo. This leads me to this tasty bottle by Tyler Florence, Food Network host, chef, restauranteur, cook book author, and now wine guy. He is putting together a fab grouping of wine, with the Sauvignon Blanc being the white offering. We have had this with oysters as well as a roasted chicken, and the citrusy characteristics shined through–think Meyer lemon, orange blossom and grapefruit. Together with Rob Mondavi, Jr. of the famed Mondavi wine family, they have crafted a lovely, lovely bottle of wine out of the Napa Valley. On these hot Summery nights, this Sauvignon Blanc is just the ticket, with a meal or to just savor by the glass.
