Dry Creek Valley wines are pure and honest, characterized by forward fruit that's expressed in the aromatic and on the palate. The wines come from grapes that enjoy warm sunny days and cool lightly breezy evenings. You can almost set you watch by the 3 o'clock breeze that cools the day. Marine influences temper the heat of day and allow for flavor and color accumulation in fruit form Dry Creek.
