2011 Henry of Pelham Sauvignon Blanc

Stopped by the Red Lobster the other day and this one was on the by the glass menu. I’ve had a string of good Niagara Sauv Blanc’s lately so I thought I’d give it a try. Pale in color with a grassy nose. On the mid pallet there’s a grassy flavor to go along nicely with the nose with a hint of sweetness. The wine is on the lighter side of medium on the finish. I would give this an 88 or so. I paired it with Snow Crab (which I have to say the Keg does better) and it went well. I was reasonably impressed by this wine. Not bad at all. It’s a softer wine. Very food friendly.
