Yes, indeed, Dry Creek Vineyard does Sauvignon Blanc, and very well at that. Winery founder David Stare made sure of that long before anyone thought Sauvignon was a viable commercial grape in California. So DCV had a passion for Sauvignon then, and still does. The basic 2010 Fume Blanc (100 percent Sauvignon) is a classic, exhibiting intense aromas of lemongrass and dried herbs, passion fruit and grapefruit, with exquisite balance, modest alcohol (13.5 percent) and a lingering finish.
