“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.” – Wine Enthusiast

One of Sonoma Magazine’s Top 100 Wines of the Year, “Buy this Sauvignon Blanc by the case for its mouth-watering citrus, lemongrass and green melon aromas and flavors… and also for its age worthiness. Dry Creek Vineyard Fumé Blancs from the late 1970s still taste lively and refreshing.” Sonoma Magazine

Wait… is this a Sauvignon Blanc or a Fume Blanc? Yes. Fume Blanc is the name given to Sauvignon Blanc by a certain marketing minded California winery back in the 1960’s to overcome issues with pronunciation, or so the legend goes.  Can you imagine a time when Sauvignon Blanc was unpopular? Hard to imagine.
