2015 Rutherford Sauvignon Blanc
Melrose Vineyard, Napa Valley
One sip of this crisp refreshing wine will leave you yearning for more. Delicate floral perfumes, vibrant lemon zest and juicy grapefruit tempt the nose. With time in the glass, faint expressions of ripe pineapple, lychee fruit and wet granite begin to surface. The balanced acidity strikes up front, lingers through the mid-palette and finishes strong with shades of honey and melon.

Food Pairing Notes
This wine shines when matched with grilled, smoked, cured and delicately spiced foods. A go-to summer staple, it’s perfect with grilled Hamachi tacos and spicy fruit salsas, or alongside prosciutto-wrapped melons and Manchego.
