Bulletproof Picasso Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Bulletproof-Picasso-Bottle-Shot-123x460Sandra Silfven, writing for Detroit News, sampled the latest wine released by rock band Train. A Sauvignon Blanc titled Bullet Proof Picasso, the same name as the band’s seventh studio album, was described by Silfven as having aromas of “honeysuckle, grapefruit, lemon and ripe stone fruit.”

She added: “This is a crisp, tangy Sauvignon Blanc in a pale green bottle dressed up with a label portraying the famed “Painted Ladies” houses across from San Francisco’s Alamo Square park. The Victorian and Edwardian homes painted in pastels are in the neighborhood where lead guitarist Jimmy Stafford lived during the band’s early years.

“Dressed up in a green-tinted bottle with a label that is unmistakenly San Francisco, this crisp wonder has all the good beats of its producer, Train. Swirl the wine and inhale the delicate honeysuckle, grapefruit, lemon and ripe stone fruit. Flavors are tart-crisp-dry with a hint of herbs, lime zest and minerality.”

Price: $14.99
