Crocker Starr 2008 Sauvignon Blanc, St. Helena and Napa Valley, $47:

The intense bouquet of this wine awakens all the senses with complex, exotic fruits and flowers. Freesia and citrus are followed by layers of white peach, mango and guava. The vibrant acidity and savory minerality are rounded with characters of litchi and vanilla cream.

Where to find it:

Mulvaney’s B&L in midtown (mulvaneysbl.com), and The Market at Pavilions (marketatpavilions.com) and Beyond Napa Wine Merchants in Sacramento (beyondnapa.com).

What to eat with this wine:

House smoked salmon topped with chives and crème fraiche and served with micro-diced egg, red onion and capers.

Patrick Mulvaney is the proprietor and chef of Mulvaney’s B&L.
