2005 GRAND PACIFIC STARLINER WHITE




Wednesday/Thursday, 6/6-7, Little Rock, AR
A two-day review of this one was required as I really didn't like it when I first opened it and wanted to give it a fair shake. A blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Muscat Canelli, this one smelled somewhat sweet when I opened it. On the nose I picked up a scent of sugared pears but mostly just sugar. On the palate more sugar, a little bit of grapefruit and just a hint of citrus. Very smooth on the finish. I paid $9.99/bottle for this and gave it 2 Corkscrews as I really didn't like this bottle. Great label, so-so wine! Of course I freely admit that I don't like a sweet wine and this one seemed to be dominated by the Muscat. If you're in to sweet, this may be for you. Sit Long, Talk Much, Laugh Often, Drink Wine!
