Wine Review: Dry Creek seems to do very well with its crowd pleasing white wine offerings. This Fumé Blanc is another Very Good one. This light yellow wine opens up with a refreshing light lime like bouquet with some hints of minerality as well. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is round, slightly viscous, and is quite tasty with its slightly tart lime like flavors with noticeable minerality lingering here as well. The finish is dry, refreshing, but brief. This wine will serve you well at the pool this summer. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our 2006 Sonoma County Fumé Blanc strikes an excellent balance between bright, crisp varietal character and mineral undertones that have become hallmarks of Dry Creek Vineyard Fumé Blanc. Inviting aromas of fresh grass, lemon, and grapefruit lead to juicy flavors of citrus, lime, and crushed stone nuances. The finish is supported by crisp, food friendly acidity that speaks to the classic character of the delicious Sauvignon Blanc varietal.
