2005 CLOS du BOIS SAUVIGNON BLANC



Wednesday, 3/21, Little Rock, AR

After another busy day at the office, so much so that I missed my daily workout, and another beautiful day in The Rock, I rushed home to change into some shorts and then off to my 8-year old's soccer game. She's on a very competitive team this year and is only one of two 8 yr olds with the rest of the team 9 and 10. After 4 games they are undefeated and she has scored in 2 games, both game winners, and has had 2 assists in the others. She's always been a natural athlete and both of her coaches are genuinely surprised how good she is. She's probably the fastest on her team and she has the old man's aggressiveness on the field. I know, I know. A proud dad going on and on about their kid! I can't help myself.
After the game we headed out to find some chow and ended up at Loca Luna. Our first time there and they were extremely busy for a Wednesday night. Great ambiance and space but I think the crowd affected the service as it took us over an hour to get our order after it had been placed and when it did come out my dish, soft shell crabs over pasta, was lukewarm at the very best and my father-in-law's entree was the wrong one. I've written to the owner so we'll see if anything comes of that. With our dinner we ordered the 2005 Clos du Bois Sauvignon Blanc. Not a lot of nose other than an overwhelming smell of grapefruit which manifested itself in the mouth once the first taste was had. A little melon was picked up but this wine comes close to tasting like a watered down grapefruit juice. And you know how I feel about grapefruit juice tasting wine! I gave this one 2 Corkscrews as I can't ever see myself buying it again good value or not. Their other varietals may be different but nothing to recommend on the Sauvignon. Sit Long, Talk Much, Laugh Often, Drink Wine!
