Arbor Crest Sauvignon Blanc & Salmon

On July 6, 2007
Arbor Crest Sauvignon Blanc 2003 Columbia Valley (Washington)
Disappointing. Not bad, just nothing. No nose, no distinguishable taste. Not even “boring,” as there isn’t enough there to be bored with. A “No” wine. Price unknown, probably around $10.

We eat a lot of salmon, and tonight we pan braised it with a little olive oil, white wine, and a red-cherry reduction we’d made up shortly before. A side of (leftover) potato and wild mushroom gratin. (The soft cherries left over from the reduction also went darn well on a small bowl of ice cream.)
