How Many Bears? Four!

*Disclaimer: I received this wine as a sample from Sean Minor Winery.

I like the story behind this wine.  It’s named 4 Bears in honor of the four children of the owners.  I had a chance to taste the Cabernet Sauvignon back at the Wine Blogger Conference last October and was quite impressed with the value I found in that $17 bottle of wine, so I jumped at the chance to try some other offerings from Four Bears.  You’ll see some additional reviews in the coming weeks.  Tonight I’m drinking the 2006 4 Bears Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc.  It retails for $14, had a real cork closure, and clocked in 13.5% alcohol by volume.

On the nose I found grapefruit, lime, citrus, orange, tropical notes, melon, and figs.  This one had a fruit cup for a nose! In the mouth I got flavors of pink grapefruit, lemon, lime, and white peach.  I found the wine to be quite limey in the mouth.

Overall I’d describe the wine as crisp, light, dry, and easy to drink.  This would be a great wine for the upcoming months, especially at this price point.  And it went really well with the Tilapia I so love to make in the warmer weather! Drink up!
