Dry Creek Chenin Blanc 2003 (PB)

Previously reviewed California Chenin Blanc–the grape that gets little respect– is citrusy and fruity and has such a bracing acidity that it is really nice with food. This is the grape of the Loire and need not be associated with the cheap white jug wines of years gone by.

What is being done with this grape gives portent to what will surely be rising prices for well made Chenin Blancs and Dry Creek does it as well as anybody and better than most. I have the 2004 on order and it supposed to be even better than the 03. No matter what you think, give this wine a try. At less than $9 you will be thrilled you did! Raise a glass!
