Dyed-In-The-Wool 2005 Sauvignon Blanc (Marlborough)

Best Buy

This consistent value performer is made specially for the U.S. importer by a winery whose “name” wine is imported by someone else. Too confusing? Try this: Winery A makes wine under the Winery A label and sells it for a premium price through Importer A. Then, since it has additional wine, it bottles more under Label B and sells that through Importer B. (No, I'm not going to spill the grapes and tell you the name of the winery in question.) A slightly musky scent imparts an exotic note to the passion fruit aromas, while the grapefruity notes on the palate are pleasantly plump before turning a bit chalky on the finish. Joe Czerwinski
