Here's an intense, no-holds-barred sauvignon blanc that isn't for folks who are ambivalent about this bold white varietal. It's very dry, intensely herbal and fresh. There's a complex mix of flavors of figs, grass, lime, minerals and smoke. Wisely bottled under a screw cap. Best drunk over the next year.
From: Sonoma County, Calif.
Serve with: Shellfish, Creole dishes
Wine Find: 2010 Matanzas Creek Sauvignon Blanc
