Cuvaison Carneros, Napa Valley Estate Grown 2016 Sauvignon Blanc, $10.62-$25.99, 88 points, poured a brass color gilded in gold.
The nose was near dumb with a pleasant enough undistinguished lemon meringue.
Light-bodied, but the soft texture and unusual, for a Cali SB, roundness bestowed the impression of a heavier attribute; acidity was good and helped to give life to flavors of lemon and apple which carried into the fair finish characterized by ginger spiced apple pie and an appropriate 13.5% alcohol.
Paired fine with my sautéed Canadian cod filet and a dessert of Turkish Delight.
