Neal Napa Valley 2009 Sauvignon Blanc

Neal Napa Valley 2009 Sauvignon Blanc, $17.99-$19.99, 90 points, is a straight 100% Sauvignon Blanc with no oak.
For me, this 2009 Sauv-Blanc needed to be tasted with their 2011 Sauv-Blanc, but that wine I've not seen yet, and I say that, because though this 2009 Neal SB is quite delicious, with Meyer lemon, pineapple, and mango, it seems as if it is just beyond its best. The body is light-plus, the color light gold, and the aroma is hints of pineapple, lemon, and melon. I was getting a nice long ginger finish, but other tasters weren't.
