Oakley fourWhites 2010 Cline

This wine is a light straw color. The nose has aromas of citrus (orange blossoms), stone fruit (peaches) and lemon zest. The palate mirrors the nose with those citrus and peach flavors with an addition of some juicy honeyed notes, that are derived from the four varietals that make up this white wine blend. The wine is a blend of Palomino, Sauvignon Blanc, Malvasia Bianca and Viognier. The finish is clean and crisp, and the wine has a nice level of acidity. I would pair this wine with crab cakes, grilled fish, grilled shrimp, light cheeses and appetizers. Note: This wine was a sample provided by Cline Cellars SRP $11.00 This wine is definitely a "bang for the buck wine!

I just love finding interesting wine glasses;  this Lyla wine glass by Crate & Barrel is such a lovely shade of green! And colored glasses are not really my thing, but they are great to entertain with and coordinate with your home decor;  but when I review wines, I must have a clear glass to check the color of the wine (smile)!
