Wine of the week

May 12, 1999|By Michael Dresser

1998 Kunde Magnolia Lane Sauvignon Blanc, Sonoma Valley ($13).

This lively, peachy, spicy white wine displays an attractive floral aroma and the appealing freshness of youth. It's a technically dry wine, but there's so much fruit it gives an impression of sweetness. In view of the success of Kunde and Callaway with early-release sauvignon blancs, why don't more wineries follow their lead? Far more California whites are released too late than before their time.
