2008 Franciscan Estate Sauvignon Blanc

The 2008 Franciscan Estate Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley was purchased at my local HEB grocery store for about $14 to serve with my also HEB purchased tortilla crusted tilapia that I was pan sauteing and topping with a mango salsa.
In the glass, the wine was a very pale straw color with -medium intense aromas of lime, grapefruit and hay. On the palate, dry, medium body, medium to medium+ acidity with crisp, mainly lime/mixed citrus flavors with a bit of minerality and a medium length finish.
A good wine at a good price.
