Bernardus 2011 Griva Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc (Arroyo Seco) $22
Griva Vineyard is supersensitive to the slightest vintage variation. The chilly 2011 harvest has given just enough sweet tropical fruit flavor to balance out the tart goosenberry note. It’s still a slightly green wine, but a good one, and it will pair well with goat cheese.
