This is, as they say, a nuanced topic and totally subjective.
Lettie Teague Of Wall Street Journal opines:
As Lettie points out, often fruit content can mistakenly convey to you that the wine is sweet. What? Only one way to find out. Taste test! Here's a red and white that are fruity but DRY.
Telios 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, Lodi
A powerhouse collaboration between proprietor Gus Kalaris and winemaker Bob Egelhoff, Telios-Axios is a super premium Cabernet Sauvignon of Napa Valley "cult" status. Axios, meaning worthy in Greek, reflects Gus' vision to craft a wine
of Bordeaux influence that represents the richness of its' Napa Valley origin.

Nouvelle Chardonnay, France $13.99
Jeb Dunnuck, 92 Points
"Coming from 100% Chardonnay that was aged on Viognier lees, the 2017 Vin de France Novellum boasts sensational notes of ripe citrus, white flowers, and spice, with loads of classic Catalanes salinity and obvious minerality. Aged in 15% new barrels, it’s medium-bodied, has remarkable purity, integrated acidity, and is a total steal at the price." Good in bottle 2-4 years.
