Dry Creek Chenin Blanc 2004 (PB)

This is another review of a previously reviewed wine. At the risk of being redundant, I explain briefly that I always review essentially every wine I taste no matter how many times I have had it previously. There are too many factors with wine that cause a wine to change—or one’s taste buds to change—[due to illness or medications, etc] that could have greatly impacted a previous review. I have had many wines that I either loved initially but at subsequent tastings didn’t care for it all that much, and others, which I didn’t care for all that much but with later reviews, adored it.

(Oops! After checking, this is my initial review of the 2004. See previous review of the 2003.)

This wine which sells just about everywhere it seems will cost you around $10. It is full of wonderful aromas of citrus, melon, and possibly pears or maybe even a little pineapple. It is well structured with good acid making it a nice food wine and yet there is a softness and flavorful backbone to it that makes it pretty nice just for sipping with a nice chill on it. The 2003 of the same wine was equally as good. Either way, pick one up and raise a glass; you’ll be glad you did.
