Frei Brothers Redwood Creek California Sauvignon Blanc, 2007

I wanted to taste this next to the Frenzy (below) to compare two inexpensive versions of Sauvignon Blanc. The Redwood Creek is a very enjoyable Sauvignon Blanc for the money (I paid $6.99), but it's not in the same league as the Frenzy. All the Sauvignon Blanc traits are there--gooseberry, grass, grapefruit, melon and a hint of cat. It's sweeter than the Frenzy, and it glides nicely across the palate on a summer evening. Compared to the Frenzy, though, where is the excitement?

If you're looking for a good Sauvignon Blanc for a large gathering or for easy drinking, Redwood Creek is fine. If you're looking for an experience, pick up a bottle of Frenzy.
