I stopped by the iYellow Bordeaux after work party at Crush wine bar. This was my second one. I really like the way these events have been laid out. By having them early after work it made it easy to stop by on your way home. They were conveniently located at downtown bars, were inexpensive and a geat opportunity to try out a few wines and mix and mingle. I hope iYellow choose to do them again. Sadly there are no more scheduled at this time.

This particular wine is a Sauv Blanc as is typical of a white Bordeaux. Pale in color with a nose of citrus. On the mid pallet this wine is dominated by a tart grapefruit flavor. The wine is medium in length with this tartness gripping the tongue and holding on for a bit. To my tastes this is a rough, poorly made wine that I found fought in the mouth. Not well balanced at all. I would give it maybe an 87. Which for the price is by no means a good deal. If I had any I would take it back. Given the number of terrific Sauv Blanc’s I’ve reviewed here I would definitely recommend you look elsewhere.
