WINE OF THE WEEK

September 19, 2001|By Michael Dresser

1999 Quivira Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc, Dry Creek Valley, Fig Tree Vineyard ($16). This is simply an extraordinary California wine at its price. A full-bodied dry white wine, it offers a complex and fascinating flavor profile: herbs, minerals, figs, vanilla, nuts, melons and even a hint of cherry. If you're used to selecting that other white-wine grape, rest assured that this sauvignon blanc puts most chardonnays in its price class to shame. It deserves to be served with roast poultry or, better yet, salmon.
