Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Napa Valley AVETA 2015 Sauvignon Blanc, $20.39-$26.99, 90 points, poured a light gold color clearing toward the glass shallows.
Aromas were a reticent lemon, tangerine, honeysuckle, and fresh-cut hay.
Light-bodied, but intense with a 14.5% alcohol (a bit out of balance), typically bright acidity, and flavors reflective of the aromas.
Finished well on the trailing palate with good ginger and white pepper notes.
Paired perfectly with my deep fried Icelandic cod loin and Japanese rangoon.
