Wine of the Week: 2011 Red C Sauvignon Blanc 'Dry Creek Valley'

Los Angeles Times

Need a bottle of kosher wine for the holidays? Look no further than this second vintage of Red C Sauvignon Blanc from Covenant Wines. Made with fruit from the Dry Creek Valley's Allan Nelson Vineyard, this is a beautiful example of Sonoma Sauvignon Blanc. Jeff Morgan just let the natural yeasts do their thing, and the 2011 Red C is grassy with ripe golden fruit tempered by a bright thread of acidity and an appealing minerality.
