Wine of the week

March 28, 2001|By Michael Dresser

1999 Daniel Gehrs Pinot Blanc, Monterey County, Pinnacles ($15). California produces many pinot blancs, but few bear any resemblance to the delicious versions produced in Alsace. This is a brilliant exception -- rich, honeyed, intense and spicy. It offers vibrant flavors of peach, pear, melons, coconut, vanilla, banana and spices. While it's basically a dry wine, it gives an impression of sweet fruit. It was a brilliant match for pan-seared salmon and would also go well with roast chicken. To find the wine, call 800-275-8138.
