2005 Solomons Island Sauvignon Blanc ($16)

WINE FIND

November 15, 2006|By MIKE DRESSER

It is not uncommon for small startup wineries on the East Coast to rely on out-of-state grapes while their own vineyards reach maturity. What is unusual is for a wine made from grapes brought in from across the continent to turn out so well. This Southern Maryland winery has produced a sauvignon blanc from California grapes that is complex, well-rounded and dry. It displays good pear and fig fruit, seasoned with hints of newly cut grass, mint and other fresh herbs. It's available at a limited number of wine stores in Baltimore. Serve with Southern Maryland-style oyster stew.
