The 2010 Cannonball Sauvignon Blanc, Sonoma County is nearly devoid of color. (I think there's more tint to the bottle than there is to the wine itself.) But don't let that fool you. The nose and palate feature beautiful white flower, peach and melon aromas and flavors with some light grapefruit and herbaceous notes lurking in the shadows. Does a nice job of walking the line between that rich, melony California style and the leaner, herbaceous New Zealand style. Nicely balanced on the palate with no oak influence and good acidity. Finishes a bit sweet, but you won't catch me complaining about that. Simply charming as a summer sipper or with a grilled filet of citrus pepper-rubbed salmon and steamed broccoli. About $12
