2009 Overlake Sauvignon Blanc

Even as adventures in cheap wines continue, I have been somewhat remiss in posting about them. So here's the first of a few wines I had a pleasure to consume lately.

I don't actually know for sure whether I bought it, but nevertheless it is a Trader Joe's cheap wine. It has been sitting in my fridge for a couple months now, could well have been from my last party.

In any event, it was a fairly decent wine, very much in line with what I like in my Sauvignon Blancs: grapefruity and mineral-rich. It was a nice wine to go with some pan-seared halibut and steamed veggies. Nothing super-complex, nothing super-interesting, but surely much better than the five-dollar price tag would suggest.
