Dry Creek Vineyard, Clarksburg (California) Dry Chenin Blanc 2020

($16):  If there is a California Chenin Blanc that’s more enjoyable than Dry Creek Vineyard’s, I would like someone to tell me.  Crisp and clean, it conveys a delicate fruitiness.  Light and airy — only 12 percent stated alcohol — its verve and floral fruitiness are in perfect harmony.  It is a versatile wine, great as an aperitif, but with enough oomph to stand up to antipasti.  It’s also a fine choice for spicy Asian or Latin American fare.  My advice is to stock up for summer.
