Dry Creek Vineyard, Chenin Blanc, Clarksburg, 2017 - $11.99
For Dry Creek family winery Chenin Blanc is a passion. They are proud to have produced Dry Chenin Blanc each and every year of their 45-year history. “Orange-marmalade aromas set the stage for a rather full-bodied, dry and flavorful wine. Floral and fruity elements are counter-balanced by a tangy texture and subtle mineral accents. A classic of the type, it has a lot of personality, a great presence on the palate and a lingering finish.” 91 pts. Best Buy, Wine Enthusiast
