Best Buy! The brothers-in-law from Wisconsin source beyond their estate plantings in the Walla Walla Valley and collaborate with some of Washington’s top winegrowers for their nicely priced Boomtown tier. In the case of this stellar Sauvignon Blanc, they pull from two of the Northwest’s prime locations for graceful white wines — Olsen Vineyard in the Yakima Valley and Evergreen Vineyard in the Ancient Lakes. This provides much of what a Sauvignon Blanc supporter wants, a weaving of Key lime, gooseberry pie, grassiness, tomcat and Ancient Lakes minerality. The profile is zesty yet not nervy, and screams for steamed mussels.
