Aromatics of lemon, lime and grapefruit leap forward from the glass with both fruit and floral nuances of nectarine, peach, jasmine and orange blossom. On the palate, the wine is intense and bright with passionfruit, tangerine and cucumber. Underlying minerality and hints of lemongrass, parsley and mango contribute to this wine's refreshing, crisp finish.
90pts Wine Spectator "Intense and mouthwatering, with notes of fresh-cut lemongrass, ginger and lemon basil complementing the Meyer lemon, yuzu, Honeycrisp apple and lime flavors. Impressive for its focus and intensity through the finish."
89pts Wine Enthusiast "Walking a good line between fruitiness and herbaceousness, this widely available and affordable wine blends honeydew melons with parsley and celery flavors on a nicely tangy texture and a medium body."
Dry Creek Vineyard was established in 1972 and is Dry Creek Valley's flagship winery located in the heart of Sonoma County, California. As the region's first new winery following Prohibition, founder David Stare paved the way for a viticultural rebirth in this vibrant wine growing appellation. Among other industry benchmarks, Dry Creek Vineyard is recognized as the first winery to plant Sauvignon Blanc in the Dry Creek Valley, and was also the first to use the term "Meritage" with the 1985 vintage.
Dave's daughter, Kim Stare Wallace, now serves as President overseeing a successful family winemaking and grape growing business that includes 185 acres of sustainably farmed vineyards. Dry Creek Vineyard is firmly committed to a "No Compromises" philosophy, producing appellation-focused, terroir-driven, varietal-defining wines, including Heritage Vines Zinfandel, which was selected as a Wine Spectator "Top 100" Wine of 2019. Named one of the Top 100 wineries of 2015 by Wine & Spirits Magazine and a Top 10 Tasting Room by USA TODAY, the winery is also 100% Certified Sustainable. Dry Creek Vineyard proudly produces delicious Dry Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and Heritage blends as well as a portfolio of single vineyard selections.
