I’m chilling at home with Oliver, after working all day and going for a nice walk with friends after work. I opened a bottle of the 2013 Corvidae Wise Guy Sauvignon Blanc. Corvidae is a second label of Owen Roe, a winery with production facilities in Washington and Oregon. We had it for the first time when we visited Owen Roe’s Yakima tasting room in January (they were one of the few that were open!).
The wine is a pale straw color, with a crisp nose of lemongrass. On the palate this wine is crisp and clean, with a slight tartness and flavors of lemongrass, lychee and pineapple. It is a great wine, and retails for only $10. At that price, I should have purchased a whole case! It looks like the Sauvignon Blanc is sold out at the winery, so be sure to snatch this wine up if you find it out and about.
Oh, and they totally get bonus points for the label! Check out the crow’s legs!
Happy Tuesday Everybody!
