Wine Review: Provenance Vineyards 2014 Sauvignon Blanc

Hubby and I decided to take a trip to Costco to stock up on food items for home.  With four boys, it is an absolute necessity that you do wholesale shopping for food!  Naturally, I have not developed the ability to go into Costco and only focus on food items.  I am usually anxious to hit the wine aisles as soon as I get there.

The Costco in Vacaville, CA is a bit smaller than the ones I am accustomed to.  However, it does not disappoint.  Costco often has wine selections that are usually only available through the winery, restaurants or in specialty retail.  There were several items that caught my attention, but it was the Provenance Sauvignon Blanc that I couldn’t take my eyes off of.  I have not had the opportunity to visit the winery, but have sometimes seen their wines on the shelves of my favorite specialty grocery store.  This particular bottle was irresistible because it fell just below my everyday wine price of $20.

Winemaker’s Notes:  Hard to identify winemaker’s notes for this particular vintage.  The Provenance Vineyards website has information on the 2013 Sauvignon Blanc if you would like to take a glance at those.  I will, of course, update this article if I am able to track down notes from the winemaker at a later date.
