Blanck Blanc

The first wine I chose for our hiking/riding/communing with nature trip was the 2007 Paul Blanck Pinot Blanc.  Now, I love Pinot Blanc.  Michel Schlumberger makes my favorite one currently.  The Paul Blanck clocked in at 12.5% alcohol by volume, had a screw cap closure, and cost me $9.99 at the wine shop near work.  It was on sale, usually it retails for $12.99.  This fit square into my qualifications for an after hiking wine, and we really enjoyed it.

On the nose I found the wine to be smoky, with spice, jasmine, flowers, lemon, nuts, and pear.  In the mouth I got lime, lemon, spice, flowers, and more nuts.  It was slightly on the sweet side, but chilled down enough I found it to be refreshing, and a good value for $9.99.
