Steven Kent 2005 Sauvignon Blanc

I have all sorts of things I'd like to post about, and I'm not sure when I'm likely to get the time, but I did want to make a quick post about the wine I had with dinner last night. Mr. Spaceling and I had a celebratory meal at Manresa last night, and I ordered a glass of the Steven Kent 2005 Sauvignon Blanc. Mr. Spaceling had a taste of my glass, and immediately ordered one of his own. This is good stuff. I may go ahead and buy a bottle or two.

I'm also rather amused and pleased that the winery is over in the Livermore valley. Practically in my back yard.

Now, the thing that puzzles me - if you go and read the description of that wine at the link, you'll see they describe it as 'Characterized by the exuberant flavors and aromas of lime, fig, and the “juice of the cat,”' Er..."juice of the cat"? I definitely tasted the lime and fig (well, okay, I tasted "yummy fruity citrusy", but I'll take all the credit I can get), but...cat?
