Dry Creek Chenin Blanc 2004 wine review by (PB)

Dry Creek makes one of my regular favorite Chenins but I liked them MUCH more when they running $7 a bottle instead of the $10 they now go for.

This one is pale golden with a pronounced bouquet of pineapple.

In the mouth this wine is off dry—meaning, it tastes like it has a sweet edge but is actually quite dry with a nice zippy acid foundation. It finishes with a strong citrus ending with apricot and peach notes. This wine however was better in the Spring which means it is going down hill so drink it up NOW. And raise a glass to a happy Thanksgiving to all.
