This is a very good, value-priced wine made by Curtis winemaker Chuck Carlson in Santa Ynez Valley. Grown in two vineyards in the warmer sites, it’s a classic California-style Sauvignon Blanc. Forward fruit flavors of pink grapefruit and melon are nicely offset by zingy citrus notes. It’s an easy sipping wine that’s refreshing on its own and food friendly. Pair it with salads topped with goat cheese, shrimp-and-feta-topped pizza, or Caesar with grilled fish or poultry. Widely available in restaurants and shops, it’s at Scolari’s for only $8.99 retail.
