“2010 Skinner Stoney Creek Vineyard Fair Play Grenache Blanc ($22, 13.3%): Winemaker Chris Pittenger is bringing impressive finesse to this new label from the Sierra foothills. This varietal Grenache Blanc, from the Skinner family’s estate parcel and the Swansboro vineyard farmed by Ron Mansfield is a pitch-perfect example of that grape, with a ripe almond, pear and lemon-zest profile, plus orange and chalky stone highlights. A great mix of flesh and focus, with a chervil edge to the finish.”
