Not a great picture, but a great wine!

July 26, 2007
I just could not get the lighting for this picture to come out. I tried lights on, lights off, flash on, flash off, lights dimmed....then I finally just gave up because I really wanted to drink the wine.

The wine was a 2006 St. Martin Reserve Sauvginon Blanc from the France Vin de Pays d'Oc. It weighed in at 12.5% alcohol by volume, cost me $6.49 at Total Wine and had a screw-top closure I believe. We drank this late one evening when it was far too hot to go to bed and a cold glass of wine sounded divine.

The nose of the wine was floral with peaches and melons. I would also describe the aroma as being crisp and fresh. In the mouth I found melon and oranges. The wine had great acidity and balance and was perfect for the intolerable heat of the evening. I would definitely seek this one out again, the value for the cost was excellent.

    A few of us the other day were talking about how hard it is to photograph glass! The wine bottles are even harder as they reflect every bit of light that is around. But hey, are we here for photos or wine??? You know my answer!
