Dr. Konstantin Frank Sauvignon Blanc 2015: $20 Very Good

The Dr. Konstantin Frank Sauvignon Blanc (Finger Lakes, NY) 2015 $20 [Very Good] is a fresh sappy wine, with flavors of gooseberry, stone fruit and smoky mineral.  Not a powerful wine, this bottle wins with its focused flavors and balance.  Sip it with snacks, or serve with lighter dishes.

Medium lemon in color, the aromas are sappy, tart, and medium intense, with scents of lemon, gooseberry, stone fruit and smoky mineral notes.  Medium bodied, silky, dry, and pleasingly tart, the Frank is very well balanced.  Flavors of gooseberry, stone fruit, grapefruit, smoky mineral and understated grassy notes have nice focus and concentration.  The finish is tart, tangy and lip smacking with a renewed burst of fruit and very good length.  Flavors linger.  December 2016
