Dutcher Crossing Winery2008 Sauvignon Blanc
(Dry Creek Valley)
A classic Dry Creek style of wine with faint hay and herbs, and great varietal and regional notes, with a succulence in mid-palate. Could age nicely for a year or longer. A lovely wine from longtime wine maker Kerry Damskey.

Dan Berger has been reviewing wine for 30 years, always seeking character related to varietal type and regional identity. He has never used numbers to rank wine and doesn’t plan to start any time soon. He believes that weight and concentration aren’t the only worthy aspects of wine and is especially smitten by cool-climate and food-friendly wines that offer distinctiveness.
