Bear Boat Sauvignon Blanc

 Beside the fact that this particular choice was only $6.99 for a 750ml bottle, you’ve got to give points to a wine that has two bears in a row boat having a conversation on their label. Even more noteworthy, there are at least 5 different conversations between the bears.

The Bear Boat Sauvignon Blanc carries the Alexander Valley appellation on the label, a subset of Sonoma straddling the Russian River. They are owned by Remy Cointreau, a French concern probably more known for Cognacs, Brandies, and Liquers.

Sauvignon Blancs range, in character, from a vegetal, “green” taste to more a citrus, fruit style. The Bear Boat has a hint of “grassy”, but is much more lemon, pineapple, grapefruit tasting. Very light golden- green, nearly clear in the glass, light on the tongue as well. Enough acidity to notice, but quite easy to drink. There is an oak note as well. Refreshing, and good. A very good value.

    Found this wine at the PA wine store. At $6.99 I had to give it a try. What a surprise it turned out to be. Eveyone I’ve served it to, has also commented on how good it was. Clean with good feel on the tongue. Coats the glass well. I’ve purchased many more bottles. And will as long as it’s in stock. I’ve always enjoyed Bear Boat’s Pinot Noir. Chalk up another one from Bear Boat.
