Nautilus 2008 Sauv Blanc

Stopped on by Spice Route again last night where we were well taken care of by Alice. The staff are great in this place and the food is wonderful. The fusion of tastes is a treat. We often order seafood based dishes so a white is in order. We decided on a lobster chow mein dish so a Sauv Blanc sounded like a great choice. It went for $40 for the bottle in the restaurant, and it was one I had not had before. Pale straw in color, grassy and lemony on the nose the wine was shaping up well … On the mid pallet are some lovely under control lemon, grass and citrus flavors. The finish is also smooth, on the medium side in length. Overall this is a well crafted wine and it went well with the seafood. I would give it an 89 or so. Not the longest Sauv Blanc I’ve ever had but quite nice none the less. Before we knew it, evaporation had taken place (or we had consumed the bottle) and all that was left was to pay the bill (and write this blog of course!). Another fine night at Spice. Whoever they have choosing wines at Spice is doing a great job. Reasonably priced, nice selection, paired well with their foods. The staff seem to know how to treat the wine with the respect it deserves too, always a plus.
