Whilst out to dinner last night with some friends at Morimoto, I saw somebody that I hadn't seen in a couple of years - we actually used to work together for a little while.  Vinomaker and I don't eat out very often but when we do I usually bump into someone I know.  It was lovely to see my old coworker and have a quick catch-up. And it reminded me to drink a bottle of CADE Sauvignon Blanc that's been sitting in my wine cooler for a while, because CADE is the winery where my ex-coworker is currently employed.
I liked the 2012 vintage of this wine, so I expected to like the 2013, and I did.  For me, this wine had lemon drops and a subtle hint of flowering rosemary on the nose, a lovely mouth-filling texture, lemon and orange peel on the palate and a winning acidity.  Nice.
Just in case anyone was wondering, with dinner I drank a TWWIAGE Sauvignon Blanc and a Hill Family Estate, 2012 Albariño (Napa AVA), of which the latter paired really well with my cold, dead fish.

With all the 2013 SBs I've had, sadly, Cade was not among them!
Note to self: Swallow no more goldfish in an effort to avoid eating dead fish!

Why was the dead fish cold?

Also, what is your old co-worker doing in your wine cooler?

An inquiring mind wants to know...

PS: Never heard of Cade until now.

NHW: I liked this wine a lot.
You don't like sushi?

Tomasso: I generally like my sushi to be dead and really cold :)
A clumsy sentence indeed, I may rectify that. Then again, maybe I won't.
Haven't heard of Cade? That's OK, I hear of new Napa wineries on a daily basis!!!

When I asked the question about the cold dead fish, I had forgotten about Morimoto.

In any case, I prefer beer with sushi.
