Kim Crawford 2009 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

Pale straw color, petillance forms on the glass.

Bright lemon and lime smells, herbaceous notes.

A noticeable amount of residual sugar in this citrus-tasting wine. I feel condescended to, and not in a good way. Tingly petillance is apparent on the tongue.

Inadequate bottle for $17.99. I mark down severely for a normally dry wine presented with significant residual sugar. Your mileage may vary, this isn't technical incompetence, this is a marketing decision of which I disapprove.

I tried to enjoy a second, later, bottle knowing it was off-dry and to not prejudge, but then become distressed as the herbaceous, vegetal, smell and taste. Still a negative.
