Carlos Basso Sauvignon Blanc 2007
Let's be clear about one thing: This Argentinian from the Mendoza valley is no great shakes. It has all of the aloofness of the Sauvignon Blanc without the characteristic edge. Having said that, however, I would like to add that it is a very pleasant, utterly drinkable little wine, with a nicely delineated fresh fruit character. If you are'nt looking for a notable tasting experience but merely want a white to go along with an everyday meal at a reasonable price, it will do very nicely. And, at the present sale price of $4.99, it can't be beat. There is utter plonk that sells for more than that in PA.
