A double treat for lunch today, a 2017 Crocker & Starr Sauvignon Blanc and Japanese sushi and spicy tuna roll. First the wine, which is light straw in color, and medium viscosity in the glass. That said the aromas and palate taste is “other worldly” with phenomenal citrus and liveliness to awaken any seafood be it sushi, sashimi, ceviche, cooked fish, etc. The flavors of mellow citrus, melon, mango, kiwi, guava and key lime together present an explosive mouthfeel and a finish that lasts and lasts and lasts for a prolonged and elongated finish.
Paired with both Maguro (tuna) sushi and a spicy Maguro roll with wasabi & ginger for a fabulous lunch.
