2000 Dry Creek Vineyard Fume Blanc
Dry Creek, Sonoma, California
 
WB Rating: 81

 
Alcohol by volume: 13.5%
Price at time of purchase: $10.00 (from winery)
 
Type: Sauvignon Blanc
Principal varietal(s):

Crisp and bone-dry with a good, clean mouth feel. But strongly on the grassy side of the grass vs. fruit scale. Some may like this style of Sauvignon Blanc better than I do (and I know some grassiness is part of the Sauvignon Blanc character), but to me the assertiveness of the grassiness dominated the fruit and detracted from its otherwise good qualities. - HK 2002-09-20
