The Crossings 2013-2014 Sauvignon Blanc

The Crossings 2013 Sauvignon Blanc, $13.99-$16.99, 92 points, poured a light burnished brass color.
Smells of white grapefruit with hints of lily-of-the-valley and gooseberry, were beautiful.
Light crisp body carried good acidity with a clean wet stone flavor, and citrusy notes (mostly white grapefruit), also having  a 'proper' proportioned gooseberry flavor were very good.
Finished fine on the 13.5% alcohol, lemon zest, kiwi, and a kiss of ginger.

The Crossings 2014 Sauvignon Blanc, $14.99-$16.99, 90 points, poured a light burnished brass color.
Smells of gooseberry dominated, however a bit of bubble-gum and grapefruit on the nose were interesting.
Light-bodied with good acidity and flavors reflective of the aromas were not as clean and as delicious as the 2013 vintage, but quite good.
Finished on the trailing palate, lemon peel, a well integrated 13% alcohol, just a hint of ginger, and honeysuckle.
