Duckhorn Napa Valley 2011 Sauvignon Blanc, $22.94-$31.99, 92+ points, appeared a beautiful polished gold color.
Aromatic honeysuckle and tangerine were lovely.
The medium body carried fair acidity and citrus flavors of tangerine, grapefruit, and hints of lemon on a bed of a creamy sherbet-like texture; what it lacked in crispness, it gained in its stand-alone drink-ability!
Finished long on the well integrated 13.5% alcohol, flowers, white pepper, and ginger.
When I want to be serious about a white wine, this is my go-to Sauvignon Blanc, because it is so consistently good.
