2008 Vin-Koru Sauvignon Blanc - $5.99

Proposed by the nice new wine lady at my local Trader Joe's as a cheaper version of the King Shag, that's exactly how this feels. Similarly fruity and tropical on the nose and citrusy and acidic in taste... but something here feels hollow and generic. Spend the extra $2 and get the King Shag.

thumbs down - 71

  1. Given it's only $4.99 for me in CA, I'm all for it, though I agree it's inferior to Shag. Somehow, it tastes a bit too sweet, even though it's slight higher in alcohol %. Good for drinking straight from the bottle, though.
