Beer/Wine Find: Markham 2006 Sauvignon Blanc

I made a quick stop at the Kroger at 11th last night to pick up two cartons of milk. On the way to the register, I walked quickly through the booze aisle and found a Markham 2006 Sauvignon Blanc:

$13.99 is not a bad deal for a decent wine, and Markham is a quality winemaker known mostly for their reds. A good rule of thumb to follow is to buy a wine for a reputable winery, and Markham certainly qualifies. It's not cult wine/knock your socks off, but you could certainly do a lot worse.

The ever-so-helpful sign (probably unreadable on my blackberry photo) says "Pair with a spicy Asian dish" and I concur. How about the H4 at Thai Spice on 19th (Sauteed Spicy Seafood, $13.99)?


  1. Wine Spectator listed the Markham on their Daily Wine Picks.,1142,5177,00.html
