Beringer Founders' Estate 2013 Sauvignon Blanc, $7.99-$10.99, 88 points, appeared a bright golden color and trending a bit gray at the glass shallows.
Aromatically a bit weak, but fair sweet apple and cantaloupe were okay.
Nearly medium bodied with fair acidity managed the smoothest textured Sauvignon Blanc I've ever had.
The flavors of apple, lemon, and honeydew melon were very good and balanced.
Finished well on the 13.5% alcohol, a hint of ginger, a faint grassy note, and a twist of lime.
These three 2013 Sauvignon Blanc wines pictured below will most likely conclude my great adventure into Cali 2013 Sauvignon Blanc (One more just might be in the works) white wines. And for the wine lover, it was a great adventure; to have tasted thirty five or so of the same varietal, from the same region and vintage with multiple food pairings made for a familiarization that is uncommon in a region that doesn't grow Sauvignon Blanc grapes (at least to my knowledge).
I truly fell in love with this varietal.
