Ziata 2011 Sauvignon Blanc (Napa Valley)

The price makes this one of the more expensive Sauvignon Blancs on the market, but it's also one of the best. The grapes come from a cool region in east Napa and from warmer Rutherford. The wine shows terrifically ripe, complex fruit flavors, with a superb structure of acidity and a minerally chalkiness that makes it tangy. It was stainless-steel fermented and aged in neutral oak barrels. The formula is frequently copied, but few Sauvignon Blancs achieve this level of quality.
