Dry Creek Vineyard, Dry Creek Valley (Sonoma County, California) Sauvignon Blanc 2020

($17):  Dry Creek vineyard draws on their nearly half-century experience in Dry Creek Valley to fashion beautifully balanced wines that speak rather than scream.  This Sauvignon Blanc has a bit — but not too much — of the bite characteristic of the grape variety.  Similarly, herbal nuances appear but don’t overwhelm.  It’s fresh and lively, in a Loire-style rather than a rounder Bordeaux-style of Sauvignon Blanc.  It would be a good choice for sushi.
