Reviews and Ratings

Very grassy and herbal, crisp and refreshing. Straight-up pleasure. OTHER: 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. Score: 90 Source: Robert Whitely, whitleyonwine.com. OTHER: This vintage marks the winery's 45th anniversary making this wine, a feat of historic proportion. Maintaining a fair price, it offers lime, lemon and grapefruit within bristling, buzzing acidity. The texture is thick and refined. Balanced, it's dry and refreshing. Score - 88 (Virginie Boone, Wine Enthusiast, Nov. 1, 2017). - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
