1995 Proprietor's Reserve Sauvignon Blanc
Appellation California Glen Ellen Winery
Glen Ellen, Sonoma County, CA
$5

Here's a case where big is not bad. Glen Ellen certainly is big, selling something like four million cases a year. Yet, its wines are not bad. popular styles at very popular prices. This Sauvignon Blanc is a fine example.. pleasing melon and light-herb flavors... not harshly dry.. no extremes. It's my nominee for your next large-group, small-budget party.
