Wine Review–Pancake Cellars 2007 Big Day White

Comments : 1 Posted in : Sauvignon Blanc, White Wine on by : The Gourmez

Pancake Cellars 2007 Big Day White
Other Words on the Label:  Paso Robles, California

This wine is worth buying for the novelty of the label art alone.  A giant flapjack grape terrorizes a city block and a quick turn to the back reveals that it is all the dream of a young pancake grape, safely tucked into bed.  There is a highly entertaining description of some out of control grapes on the back label as well.  Fun!

The Big Day White is mainly sauvignon blanc but also blends in chardonnay, gewürztraminer and pinot blanc.  Kiwi and pear dominate the nose but do not play a part in the taste.  Honeydew is the only flavor I detected while sipping.  It starts out sweet but ends by making me think I’d bitten into a lemon seed, which is quite the wine-sipping adventure.

An entertaining glass of wine?  Sure, but the flavors didn’t quite live up to the fanciful labels.

4.9.10 Changed those pancakes to grapes in the description of the label, as I learned from the artist’s website that I got it wrong! Oops.

    Hey there<
    Thanks for making the correction from flapjacks to grapes! But honestly, I can completely understand the mistake. It does have a curious name. When I was commissioned to illustrate the label for this wine I wasn’t sure how to make the character look very grapelike. I’m glad you enjoyed the artwork and the wine!
