Raymond Napa Valley Reserve 2011 Sauvignon Blanc Review

Janesta says, "just right" and I agree. Rain or shine we were celebrating with Shrimp Ceviche but what wine? Luckily I had cooling in the fridge a lovely 2011Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc from Raymond. Clear and pale with a slight greenish cast then aromas of fresh mineralaity, hints of the tropics with a soupçon of citrus. Add to that a snappy acidity and we had the perfect pair with our ceviche. The mouthfeel was smooth and went so well with the secret-sauced-up-lime juice.  I received this as
sample but I will be looking for it everywhere.  Meanwhile, you can get it online from The Wine King (thanks, Vinquire!)
