Okay, so I started with one glass, and that led me to write my koan for Al today, but along the way, I had a second glass, which wasn't bad. Then I called Rex (Saududes Imports) and had two more during our conversation.

This wine is a nice Sauv Blanc, though the citrus level is not as crisp as I am normally attracted to, but it's very palatable. The flavor is a combination of both grapefruit and lemon, with maybe the faintest bit of either vanilla or honey in it). That said, the acidity is not over the top, and this would be great for lighter fare, especially herbed fish or chicken.
