Twomey Napa Valley 2015 Sauvignon Blanc





Twomey Napa Valley 2015 Sauvignon Blanc, 
$22.94-$26.99, 93 points, poured a light brass color grading water clear toward the glass shallows.
Aromatic honeysuckle, melon, fresh cut grass, and harvested hay were wonderful.
Light, crisp, appropriately acidic and dynamically flavorful with aroma reflective flavors and a touch of tangerine worked a kind of enological magic.
Finished long on the trailing palate, black pepper, ginger, a bit of kiwi, and a potent 14.3% alcohol.
Though I'm more a red wine drinker in the winter, it doesn't mean an appropriate white wine (this one was splendid) doesn't have its place; paired perfectly with my New England clam chowder.
