Hall Napa Valley 2013 Sauvignon Blanc, $20.99-$24.99, 90 points, was a bright brass color.
Smells of fresh-cut grass, lemon zest, cantaloupe, and a toasty floral component were good.
The light body carried good acidity with intense flavors reflective of the nose.
Finish strong on the 14.4% alcohol, escalating ginger notes, and hints of apricot.
In the world of Sauvignon Blanc, this is a 'big' white wine, robust, and which dominated my fried white fish; just maybe a better pairing would have been oysters on the half-shell, crab, or lobster.
