The award winning wines from the recent San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition were offered for tasting to an appreciative public at Fort Mason last Saturday.
They also received great reviews from Mike Dune of the Sacramento Bee:
Dancing Crow 2017 Lake County Sauvignon Blanc:
No surprise that the best-of-class sauvignon blanc in the $17 to $21 price range, despite a crowded field (61 entries), would be from Lake County. This could be the poster picture for the area’s sauvignon blanc, not only for its striking label but for its essence of lemon and lime in the wine’s flavor, its vital acidity and spice, and its remarkably lingering finish.
Dancing Crow Vineyards 2017 Lake County Cabernet Sauvignon:
Cabernet sauvignon in this price range isn’t supposed to be this profound in expression of variety, place and vintage, but consider that it comes from Lake County, which for years has been providing Napa Valley wineries with grapes and now finally is being recognized openly for the caliber and character of its fruit.
