Tin Roof Wine In Key West

Key West is known for it's tin roofs, so when I saw this wine, yep I had to give it a try. Besides, it fit my under $10 budget for weekday wines. The wine I am speaking of is "Tin Roof" North Coast Sauvignon Blanc 2004 by Murphy-Goode who is located in Geyersville, California. Unfortunately, to me, the wine lived up to it's name, somewhat tinny. The ALC 13.5% By Vol was very prominent and seemed to overpower any fruit that I tried to detect. I sorta knew I was in trouble when I read the back label of the bottle and the subject of the screw cap took up most of the space. By hey, I am all for the screw caps and I do know how to remove them and what they are all about. I like to read about the wine that is in the bottle not how they sealed it.

It is a snow day in Key West, slightly rainy and cooler, so for "weekend wine" I think I need to pull out a zinfandel and pair it up with something for a cool spring evening. Till tomorrow!
