92pointsJC Cellars 2005 Preston Vineyard Marsanne (Dry Creek Valley)

Editors' Choice

Dry Creek Valley has a natural affinity for Marsanne, and particularly in this balanced vintage. The grapes got ripe in lemon chiffon, peach and honeysuckle flavors, while a clean crispness and minerality add length and palate interest. Sur lies aging in the barrel brings even richer notes of cream and smoky vanilla. This Marsanne explores the outer reaches of the variety's possibilities in California.
