Stay Rad Wine Blog TV Episode 131: Blanc to the Future

In this episode, Jeff tries a three vintage vertical of Sauvignon Blanc samples from Cornerstone Cellars

Wine Tasted:


Cornerstone Cellars 2011, 2010, and 2009 Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc

Food Pairing:


King Crab Mac and Cheese. The acidity of the Sauvignon Blanc cut through the fattiness of the crab and the cheese. The salinity of the wine also highlighted the seafood. This food pairing does a great job of showcasing the richness of the Cornerstone Sauvignon Blanc.

Next Day Bonus Food Pairings:


Shrimp Ceviche. This spicy and rich ceviche brought out some of the ripe fruit flavors in the wine.


Super Burrito Al Pastor. The savory burrito highlighted the herbaceous notes in the Sauvignon Blanc. I would show you a picture of the burrito unwrapped, but that would make for a messy meal.

Stay Rad,


What’s the oldest Sauvignon Blanc you’ve had?  What are your thoughts on aging your white wines?  Leave us a comment, and let us know what you think.
