Charles Krug, Napa Valley (California) Sauvignon Blanc 2021

($17):  This middle-of-the-road style of Sauvignon Blanc strikes the right balance.  A mid-weight wine, it has enough bite and varietal character so you know what you’re drinking, but it doesn’t shake you by the lapels as many Sauvignon Blancs might.  A pleasing roundness makes it a great choice as a stand-alone aperitif wine, but it has enough acidity to keep it interesting throughout a meal.
