2010 Easton Sauvignon Blanc

The nose is very fruity, a blend of sweet stone fruits and tart citrus, peaches, Meyer lemon and white grapefruit. The citrus doinates on the palate, Meyer lemon and white grapefruit pith on the attack, adding yeasty biting ginger snap on the mid-palate. Citrus pith shows on the short-lived finish. Mouth-feel is surprisingly full and viscous. Acidity lags just a bit behind the citrus flavors. Pair this pleasant, reasonably-priced wine with white fish with sweet mango salsa. Recommended (88).
