This looked to be a pretty nice Napa Sauvignon Blanc, with nice color and packaging. It indeed had nice fruit of melon and citrus, mostly yellow and a little green, but I found it overwhelmed by strong, leading bitterness.
It was better the next day, with the body and fruit more filled out and integrated, but still rather bitter. I wasn’t sure whether to say Thumbs Down (first day) or Drinkable (second day), but it probably doesn’t matter that much.
