Quite possibly the palest wine I've ever seen in a glass. It is darned close to distilled water in color Herbal, minty, peppery nose. Very very light bodied on the palate. Herbal aroma translates to herbal (bell pepper) taste. Lightness makes it quite refreshing. I yearn for acid, but with the lack of other palate sensations, I'm glad it's not really there. US$9.99 at Total Wine.

This new vintage harkens back to the early days of Fumé Blanc at Dry Creek Vineyard. At first swirl, pungent grassy aromas framed by kaffir limes leap from the glass. On the palate, the wine displays racy citrus characters along with granny smith apples, Meyer lemon and orange zest. The grassy elements repeat on the finish with acidity that is both refreshing and brisk. Dave Stare pioneered this style back in 1972 and this wine certainly carries forward all of those old school elements. Simply delicious!

Very light color. Great citrus fruit on the nose. The grapefruit kick at the end gives you the biggest dleight of this refreshing wine. With 13.5%, this wine is perfect on a hot day.

Intense aromas of lemon-lime, ruby grapefruit and fresh cut grass. After a couple of minutes in the glass, more subtle hints of kiwi and guava begin to reveal a complex wine. On the palate, this wine is truly delicious with excellent viscosity and length showing more fresh fruit flavors and very balanced acidity.
