I sat down with Jerry from Wine Country Journeys to talk about J. Rickards‘ Sémillon.

J. Rickards is a small producer located on the northern end of Dry Creek Valley. To find them, take the 101 North up to Canyon Road. Hang a right on Chianti, and then straight on until morning.

This wine sits between a Viognier and a Sauvignon Blanc. Good acidity but not too soft on the palate. You could go the route of a mildly-spicy Thai dish for this one. It can cut a bit of the spiciness but nothing too strong. It’s bright and beautiful.
