WINE OF THE WEEK

THE BALTIMORE SUN

2003 Kendall-Jackson Sauvignon Blanc ($10). This widely distributed California white wine gives you a lot of bang for the buck. Relatively full-bodied for a sauvignon blanc, it offers vibrant flavors of figs, melons, lemons, apples and minerals. It has a pleasant, smoky aroma and a touch of vanilla from judiciously used oak. There's a snappy bite to the flavor and feel - but not too much. It's not a classic, but a very smartly made wine. Best matches: salmon, swordfish, Cajun food. - - Michael Dresser
