Lay of the Land Sauvignon Blanc 2015 Marlborough, New Zealand Sauvignon blanc can be a hard sell for me, as I often find it to have broth-like qualities interfering with the crisp acidity that I crave.

Akiyoshi Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 Clarksburg, CA David Akiyoshi is one of NakedWines.Com’s go-to winemakers in California.
