10-26-15 Word On Wine 2 White Bordeaux!

By Jonathan Palevsky | Posted in Host Blogs, Word on Wine | No Comments

This week Mary and I review 2 White Bordeaux which are 100% Sauvignon Blanc.  Usually this isn’t printed on the lable but in marketing to Americans it never hurts to say what’s in the bottle.  Both of these wines were about $10 and both are a nice alternative to either new world SB from New […]
