Please disregard the lapse in the standard rating system on the previous post. My memory is just not what it used to be.
A. The Seeker Sauvignon Blanc 2012 - more info
Appearance: Light straw, well-hydrated pee
Comments: Finish is worse than taste, good summer wine, but flat. Acidity of asparagus with lemon cuts through the sweetness well, good with toasted bread.
B. Cono Sur Sauvignon Blanc 2012 - more info
Appearance: Same, but more color
Comments: A bit of honey, refreshing, mellow, good sangria base, good wine for people who don't like wine, mason jar wine, super drinkable.
Chris likes it.
C. Line 39 Sauvignon Blanc 2012 - more info
Appearance: Clear, stronger legs
Nose: 3.2 - Pear, poison ivy
Balance: 3 - Firm, formal
Finish: 2.3 - Quick and dirty
Comments: Not as sweet as expected, may go well with fish.
D. Ponga Sauvignon Blanc 2011 - more info
Appearance: Legs come slow
Comments: Acidic, innocuous, Juicy Juice
E. Stark Raving Cab NV - more info
Appearance: Super dark, purple, turbid
Nose: 3.9 - This is a smelly wine
Finish: 2.3 - Leaves with just the smoke
Comments: Sweet, with smokey undertones, would go well with cake. "I like burnt shit."
Annie and Chris would drink the shit out of it. Ian, Brian, and Jen liked it as well.
F. Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 - more info
Appearance: Dark, looks like cannons, burgundy
Balance: 2 - Fruit forward, smoke after
Finish: 3.5 - Surprisingly mellow
Comments: Astringent, but complex.
Brian liked it.
G. Columbia Crest Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 - more info
Appearance: Sepia, dark
Comments: Caramel note, cloying, Werther's Original, cinnamon, good after dinner, can stand well on its own.
H. Bota Box Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 - more info
Appearance: Standard red, doesn't disappear, looks sustainably packaged
Complexity: 2.9 - Jammy, coffee
Comments: Coffee smell, not enough Jazz Berry, mild and inoffensive.
Wine continued beyond this point, but seeing as how illegible my handwriting became by that last one (I didn't post some of the comments simply because I could not read them), it's probably good that I stopped taking notes.
