Dry Creek Vineyards Fume Blanc 2007 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Big citrus nose with melon accents

Nicely textured on the palate with a citrus core and a bit of weight

Mineral layers, kiwi, and more citrus on the finish

Nicely done! This is a beautiful Sauvignon Blanc at an affordable price of $12 or so. I paid $28 for the bottle at a restaurant, which is a pretty hefty markup that's all too common these days.

If you're a fan of this varietal, you'll want to start with this well chilled and let it gradually come up in temperature as you pour small glasses. The various citrus and mineral layers evolve and offer depth.

Raise a glass!
