Not a great picture, but a great wine!

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.
