Round Pond Rutherford~Napa Valley 2013 Sauvignon Blanc

Round Pond Rutherford~Napa Valley 2013 Sauvignon Blanc, $19.79-$21.99, a fantastic 93 points, does manage to equal two other Sauvignon Blanc wines I've had (cheers to Vinogirl), and that with a whopping well balanced 14.5% alcohol.
Poured mostly gray in color, but fringes of saffron were right out of a "SIN CITY" movie.
Blossomy aromas with hints of honeydew melon, jasmine, lemon, and cantaloupe were outstanding.
The light/crisp body mirrored the aromas well, and with mouth-watering acidity transported the palate into a long finish of kiwi, white pepper, some heat, and ginger notes.
This is indeed a treasure!
