Whoa. If you're on cholesterol medication, you're initial reaction on taking a whiff of this one is to run--all grapefruit all the time. For that matter, make it grapefruit rind. OK, I know it's safe. It's not really grapefruit juice. The palate will not convince you otherwise though. Still all grapefruit. Fortunately, a somewhat sweet, enjoyable grapefruit. There is some acid as the wine travels over the palate. This is not like any wine I think I've ever had. It is refreshing, and it is enjoyable, but it just doesn't taste like wine. A lot of people won't like this. It really is not grapefruit juice. Do, those of us who are on Simvastatin can drink it.

Fantastic Dry Creek Sauv Blanc. A lot of grapefruit on the nose but more lemon than grapefruit on the tongue. Bright, crisp and extremely well balanced. One of the better Sauv Blancs we've had.

One of the best domestic sauvignon blancs I've had in a long time. Blessed be, no oak. Fresh and grassy, but not assertive in the way of a NZ SB. Instead, warmer melon, meyer lemon, and clementine flavors accompany the grassy notes. Very nice. Would definitely buy again. Thanksgiving pick.

Dry, refreshing, and great with desserts. In my opinion, it's better than the New Zealand versions out there.

Bone dry and acidic. Very nice Dry Creek SB that goes well with fish and chicken.

Rating: 85/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the August 2010 issue. Lemon-influenced aromas of pears and grasses give this wine an initial leg up despite a certain shortfall in volume and depth, but it is those latter issues that plague the wine in the mouth. Clean and gentle at the front, then a bit lazy from mid-palate to finish, this one is not very imposing.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.

This Sauvignon Blanc is a blend of grapes from three vineyard sites in the Dry Creek Valley. Aromas of dried peach and freshly cut hay waft from the glass. Ripe fruit is balanced by a bright acidity, with flavors of grapefruit and honeysuckle coming forth on the palate.

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2012 Dry Creek Valley Sauvignon Blanc is bright and fresh. Guava and hints of key lime pie jump out of the glass. The entry is vibran t, yet maintains elegance. On the palette, there is a harmonious dance of peach, pass ion fruit and crushed rock. As you would expect from a wine that sees no oak and no ma lo-lactic fermentation, it finishes clean and smooth with perfectly balanced acidity. E njoy this wine with light appetizers, salads, seafood dishes or on its own on a warm summ er evening. Around the winery, we fondly refer to our Sauvignon Blanc as our porch wi ne." -Winery
