Attention-Getting Neal Sauvignon Blanc

Neal Family Vineyards is a quiet, tucked away, little-known, mountain winery above Napa Valley in Angwin - known among insiders for its Cabernet Sauvignon. 

But the winery is making a big play for its Sauvignon Blanc as well.

Steve Heimoff in Wine Enthusiast raves:

92 Points-Maybe it's the 100% certified organic grapes that make this wine so pure, or the fact that it never saw oak. Probably both. The fruit stands front and center with flavors of lemons, limes, Asian pears, lemongrass and gooseberries. A superior Sauvignon Blanc, at a great price, but production unfortunately was less than 1,000 cases.

The price: $18 a bottle.

I am looking forward to visiting the winery up there sometime soon - it's always fun to explore new haunts away from the madding crowd and this is at the top of my to-visit list.
