WTN: DryCreekVnyd SauvBlanc DCV3 '17...(short/boring)

by TomHill » Sun May 13, 2018 2:17 pm

Tried this last of my recent DCV whites:
1. DryCreekVnyds SauvBlanc DCV3 Estate/DryCreekVlly/SonomaCnty (Plntd: 1972; 13.5%; 383 cs; SS frmtn; www.DryCreekVineyard.com) 2017: Very pale yellow near colorless; very bright lemony/herbal/SB/lime/citrus some chalky/perfumed talc quite aromatic clean/crisp attractive nose; quite tart/tangy fairly rich/lush strong perfumey/citrusy/lemony/SB/lime light chalky/perfumed talc/metallic bright/zippy flavor; very long tart/tangy/clean/bright light herbal rather lemony/SB/citrusy slight chalky/earthy/mineral finish; not the perfumed/fragrance of the Taylor's Sauv Musque but a rather Loire-like SB but not the lean minerality those show; a very nice expression of Calif SB. $28.00/$22.40 (VSP)

A wee BloodyPulpit:
1. I have, of course, followed DaveStare from the very start...his '72 Gamay. When in France after graduation, he fell in love w/ the CheninBlanc and SauvBlancs of the Loire Vlly and they continue to be the main focus at DCV.
