Cakebread Cellars Napa Valley 2013 Sauvignon Blanc

Cakebread Cellars Napa Valley 2013 Sauvignon Blanc, $20.39-$23.99, 89 points, was a light gold color grading water-clear toward the glass bowl.
Aromatic toast, lemon, vanilla, and a floral component were good.
Light, crisp, appropriately acidic with flavors of lemon zest, honeydew melon, and ginger were good too.
Finished long on the trailing palate, accelerating ginger notes, watermelon rind, and a warm 13.9% alcohol.
Paired well with my steamed Maine lobster tails.
QPR faltered a bit with this typical Cali Sauvignon Blanc, but at $20 you'll not go wrong with Cakebread.
