Bernardus 2008 Sauvignon Blanc (Monterey County)

When Bernardus gets Sauvignon Blanc right, which they did in this vintage, they avoid those notorious feline aromas and go straight toward fruit. This is such a wine. It flatters the mouth with Meyer lemon cream, pineapple tart and vanilla flavors, accented with minerals and richly edged with crisp acidity. With a bit of buttered toast from partial barrel fermentation, it's just delicious.
