Make sure the mountains on the can are blue!—Matt Kettmann, contributing editorSauvignon Blanc is the adult version of lemonade, puckering up my mouth with bright acidity while backing that zap with a touch of fruity richness. Honestly, I almost can’t drink it in the winter, because to me, it tastes tart for the season.
