2009 Russian River Sauvignon Blanc: Lemon-Lime and Crisp (and amazing with licorice) @HannaWinery

I first tasted Hanna’s wine at Press Club in San Francisco; it’s a great wine bar in the ‘basement’ of the Four Seasons.  So, from that experience, I knew about their quality.  This Sau Blanc is traditionally crisp with lemon and lime flavors that are perfect for spring.

What I didn’t expect, and found by complete coincidence was the pairing of this wine with black licorice.  I picked up some Panda natural licorice at whole foods and had some for dessert while I still had a bit of this wine left.  The creaminess of the licorice and the anise was a perfect compliment to the crispness of the wine.  If you like licorice and Sau Blanc, give it a shot and let me know what you think.
