Slate- Why sauvignon blanc is overrated

Spoony Bard | Apr 19, 2006 10:58 AM

Looks like it's wine day on the boards. Did everyone get their tax refunds back or what?

Anyway, the Slate.com wine writer makes a case for Sauvignon Blanc being the most insipid varietal. Though he admits it often has beguiling aromas in the nose, in the mouth he claims it's like water. I'd still take it over an over-oaked chard, especially with food. This guy seems to have a non-food-centric approach.

What do you all think?
