Jones of Washington 2015 Sauvignon Blanc, Ancient Lakes of Columbia Valley, $17
The 2014 edition of this gorgeous white wine won best of show at the North Central Washington Wine Awards a year ago, and this vintage is its equal. Aromas of fresh herbs, passion fruit and a hint of gooseberry give way to flavors of tropical fruit, including papaya, pineapple and melon. It all leads to a long, gorgeous finish backed by bright acidity. This won double gold at the 2016 Wenatchee Wine & Food Festival wine competition. Enjoy this stunning wine with appetizers such as clam dip.
