At first swirl, our DCV3 Sauvignon Blanc presents a unique spicy aroma that is framed by citrus and grapefruit notes. On the palate, vibrant minerality shines through, with elements of jalapeño, lemon, and fresh limes. A few turns of the glass reveals a wine with an excellent core of acidity and zesty nuances that show a true distinctive character and terroir of the Dry Creek Valley. DCV3 is a historic vineyard and may well be one of our region’s most important and well-respected properties.
