1995 Hop Kiln's A Thousand Flowers, Russian River Valley White Table Wine ($9)

There's a lot to be said for a truly frivolous white wine. Nothing complex or demanding here -- just springtime in a glass. It's a crisp, exuberant dry wine with so much peachy fruit it seems sweet. The blend is gewurztraminer, chardonnay, sauvignon blanc and riesling, if anybody cares. Bravo to Hop Kiln for having the good sense to rush this wine to market while it's fresh. Oh, that California's chenin blanc producers would do likewise.
