Groth Napa Valley 2014 Sauvignon Blanc, $17.95-$24.99, 92 points, poured a bright gold color.
Soft floral and fresh-cut grass notes on the nose were very good.
The light, dry, and crisp body carried mouth-watering acids.
Groth 2014 SB was quite stony, flinty, and far more complex than at first its cold drinking temperature revealed; flavors of subtle tangerine, jasmine, watermelon rind, and hints of lemon grass were balanced and without ostentation.
Finished long on the trailing palate, a touch black pepper, and the well handled 14.2% alcohol.
Just a note to blogspotters: I downloaded windows 10 and on the third day was unable to upload photos to this blog. After reversing windows 10 back to 8.1 I was able to resume as I have for more than 5 years. If anyone has any comments on this situation I will be grateful.
Groth Vineyards, why it's a "go to" winery.
