Cat pee notwithstanding (EW!), Vineyard 48--previously known as Bidwell--for years has produced the North Fork's most impressive Sauvignon Blanc. Woefully overlooked (not sure why), this SB is indeed made in the New Zealand style (as opposed to more austere white Bordeaux) but absent the often lip puckering lemon acidity of many NZ bottlings. Too bad it has to price out at above $20, which prevents the wine (and the winery) from winning new fans and aficionados. Price aside, Vineyard 48 deserves credit, such as it is, for consistently turning out one of the best Sauvignon Blancs on the North Fork.

cat pee aromas as a positive? Why am I having trouble wrapping my palate around that one!!!

Cat pee, gooseberry, actually sounds just fine to me. And the package is really sharp looking. I'm going to get a few of these myself.

I love the smell of cat pee. But, I'm a cat.
