Root ; 1 Sauvignon Blanc

Yer another white from Chile's coastal region, this non vintage wine derrives its name from the fact that it's grown on pre philoxera stock (I've frankly never been able to detect any difference, but perhaps there are those who can). Like the recently reviewed Cono Sur (groan) it;s on the fruity side of the variety, with white peach and citrus elements predominant and a noticeable carbonation. $9.99. available for two dollars less in numerous places. When, if ever, can we expect any action from our distinguished state senate?
