Review: 2018 Rutherford Ranch Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley

Pale as a glass of water with a squeeze of lemon, this Napa sauvignon blanc is sunny and bright, a departure from the usual styles of this wine — either overly tropical or heavily grassy and full of ammonia character. What Rutherford Ranch offers instead is a crisp, lemony wine that’s lightly herbal, exhibiting solid mineral notes, and finishes as crisp and clean as a breath of floral-scented mountain air. At 12 bucks a bottle (vs. an MSRP of $23), it’s a highly approachable steal.
