Groth Napa Valley 2015 Sauvignon Blanc, $16.95-$21.99, 94 points, poured a light glossy gold color trending clear at the glass edge.
Soft aromatic notes crossing the boundaries of tropical, citrus, grassy, and floral were excellent.
Light-bodied with mouth-watering acidity managed a bounty of balanced Lychee, peach, citrus, and floral flavors.
Finished exceptionally long on the trailing palate, melon rind, good ginger notes, and a well-integrated big 14.5% alcohol.
Paired perfectly with our steamed Maine Lobsters and fresh Atlantic Oysters on the half-shell with lemon and peri-peri sauce.
Varietals were 81% Sauvignon Blanc and 19% Sémillon which was from five-year old vines.
Today is exactly one year since I tasted the Groth 2014 SB, but this 2015 just could be the best Sauvignon Blanc I've ever tasted; beautiful!
Groth Vineyards, why it's a "go to" winery.
