The Brassfield Serenity 2006 is golden yellow, though a bit watery with clear edges. The Brassfield Serenity is an off-dry, medium-bodied wine with lively, marked acidity. The flavors are mostly fruit and apple. It has much of the sweetness and character of a good Riesling, though it doesn't actually taste like one. Overall the Brassfield Serenity 2006 is a very good, refreshing summer wine.
The Paso Robles 2008 Sauvignon Blanc from Robert Hall is a bright straw gold with distinct green edges. It's color depth is fairly pale in nature and it has nice clarity. The flavors of the Paso Robles 2008 slightly fruity, but there is also some herby and mineral edges. It's a medium-to-full bodied wine with marked acidity and it is fairly dry.
This is a dry, medium-bodied wine with marked acidity. The Priest Ranch 2007 Sauvignon Blanc doesn't taste nearly as strong as it smells. The flavors are only low to moderate, with some barely detectable apple and maybe tropical fruit as well.
At times it has a slightly bitter aftertaste and it really needs to be cold to be enjoyed properly — as it warms, an unpleasant alcohol burn develops. Unfortunately, the colder it is the more the flavors are suppressed. In the end, this unresolvable tension causes the wine to be too unbalanced.
The aromas of the Giesen Marlborough 2007 Sauvignon Blanc are low to moderate in intensity, consisting primarily of unidentifiable fruit - mostly citrus, but also some clear herbaceous notes. The Giesen Marlborough 2007 Sauvignon Blanc is a dry, medium-bodied wine that is marked by nice, crisp acidity that is quite mouth watering. The flavors are primarily citrus and tropical fruit, though some taste gooseberry and some grasses.
The taste of the 2008 Cupcake Sauvignon Blanc can be described as crisp and light, zesty and lemony. Although quite crisp, the acid is not overwhelming or distracting; on the contrary, it balances very nicely with the citrus, lemon flavors to make it a refreshing Sauvignon Blanc that is good to just sip alone or to pair with the right foods. The Cupcake Sauvignon Blanc is, however, better when cold - the balance between the acid and flavors declines noticeably as the wine's temperature rises.
Overall the Cupcake Sauvignon Blanc is "food friendly" and should work well enough with a wide variety of dishes, though it seems as though seafood is a popular combination.
