2006 Graves

When all was said and done with Sunday dinner the clear favorite wine was a 2006  Chateau de Callac, a white Graves.  This wine is still young and smelled of fresh oak and fresh Calmyra figs.  The oak stood out and wasn't totally integrated into the wine as yet, an unmistakable smell and taste - raw and fresh and clean.  Good acidity, great body and a luscious mouth feel helped this wine match up with the swordfish when it came off the grill.  13.5% alcohol by volume.
