Patent Wines Yountville Sauvignon Blanc 2021 Napa Valley, California

Pale lemon in color with a green tint.

Very aromatic nose of white flowers, citrus, limes, green apples, gooseberry, light tropical fruits, spices, guava, lemon peel and herbs.

Light to medium in body with medium plus acidity. Crisp and refreshing.

Dry on the palate with limes, grapefruits, green apples, earth, herbs and spices.

Spicy finish with almonds and limes.

This is a tasty Sauvignon Blanc from Napa Valley. Spicy, refreshing and tangy.

Feels very much like a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, and better after 15 minutes of airtime.

A good pool wine that I paired with a beautiful day by the beach. Will also pair nicely with oysters.

14.2% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

$33.

DoublePlus Wines Sauvignon Blanc 2020, Napa Valley, California

Pale lemon in color.

Strong nose of gooseberry, white flowers, lemons, citrus, limes, light tropical fruits, green apples and spices.

Medium bodied with medium plus acidity. Crisp and refreshing.

Dry on the palate with lemon juice, green apples, grapefruits, herbs, spices and white pepper.

Medium length on the finish with tart lemons.

This is a nice surprise. Not your usual Napa Sauvignon Blanc. Feels like a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc with less tropical fruits.

Simpler out of the bottle and really changed after 30 minutes of airtime.

Nicely balanced and refreshing. Not bitter, which I liked. Tangy and interesting.

Good by itself or with food and would pair nicely with seafood. I had it all by itself, by the pool.
