2011 Dry Creek Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc, Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County, CA, $16 (S) – Rating 90

An enjoyably crisp SB with a nose of Meyer lemon, citrus and honeysuckle. Stainless steel fermentation lets the fruit speak with flavors of Meyer lemon, honeysuckle and tropicals with notes of minerality and white peach as the wine opens. Well-balanced and refreshing with crisp acidity for good food pairing. The addition of 3% Sauvignon Musque in the blend rounds out the mouth-feel a touch. Buy This Wine
