the girls in the vineyard Lake County, California, 2014 Sauvignon Blanc, $15.29-$18.99, 86+ points,
was a very light brass color trending water clear at the glass shallows.
Smells of honeysuckle, cantaloupe, and sea breezes were good.
Light-bodied, crisp, citrus tart, a dominant flavor profile of white grapefruit with hints of honeydew melon, watermelon rind, and juniper berry were okay.
Finished fair on a well-balanced 13.9% alcohol, a touch of ginger, and citrus notes.
It is said about white wines, that when cold they hide their deficiencies, but I liked this one better warm, which seems counter intuitive, but the grapefruit flavors smoothed-out, and that was better for me.
Paired well with fried sea scallops.
