Drinking Charitably with Humanitas

*Disclaimer: I received this as a sample from Humanitas so I could participate in Twitter Taste Live.

Up first for the most recent Twitter Taste Live was the 2006 Humanitas Sauvignon Blanc. I’ve previously written about Humanitas and the charitable work done with the profits from all sales. All profits from this Twitter Taste Live went straight to charity.  If you haven’t joined in the fun yet, be sure to watch the website for the next event and order your wines early!  The Sauvignon Blanc clocked in at 13.8% alcohol by volume, had a screw cap closure, hails from Monterey, and can be purchased for $14.

On the nose I found white peach, pear, apple as it warmed, grapefruit, grass, lemon, fresh cut grass, and Meyer lemon. I loved the nose on this wine! In the mouth I got flavors of lemon, peach, stone fruit, white pepper, grapefruit, nectarine, pineapple, and grass.  I found the wine to be crisp, with a fresh, clean finish.  I liked the tart fruit, and thought the wine was refreshing.
