Provenance Vineyards-Sauvignon Blanc-Rutherford-Napa Valley-California-2009-$15.99-A nose of citrus and grass, yellow straw in color.   A medium bodied and smooth white, lemon zest, peach, pear, vanilla with good acidity, a very good value.                   WS-88                 WE-88                CR-90                       Good with seafood, chicken, salads.

A. Faustini Wines-Beach House No 34-Sauvignon Blanc-Rutherford-California-2008-$30.00-A nose of crisp spicy citrus, straw in color.  A smooth easy drinking white, lemon zest, grape fruit, minerals and a very long finish, has more weight than a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.  I was not a big fan of a Sauvignon Blanc, more of a Chardonnay fan for whites, but this was very enjoyable, seek it out.                  NR                   CR-91                     Good with cheeses, seafood, salads.
