2008 Cypress Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc

We had this wine at Politica last night. Pale in color, varietal on the nose there are some well under control bouquets of lemon and grass but quite subtle. On the mid pallet the tastes match the bouquet this is a smooth well made Sauv Blanc with grassyness and lemon dominant but not overpowering. This is a very food friendly wine. The wine is on the lighter side of medium. The alcohol is well under control. I would give it an 89 or so. Very nice wine. I paired it with a pasta dish with steam and shrimp in a red sauce and it went quite well. All in all, a lovely meal complemented by this very nice wine! Not surprising that this is a J Lohr. I find I really enjoy all there wines. Unfortunately, not available in the LCBO.
