Pinot and Rhone-style whites for Thanksgiving: The Chronicle recommends

“2009 Skinner Stoney Creek Vineyard Fair Play Grenache Blanc ($20, 13.3% percent): Newly established Skinner is helping revive the Sierra foothills as a top growing region, and Chris Pittenger is setting a California benchmark with this pitch-perfect Grenache Blanc. Steely Chinese chive and lemon rind accents on a surprisingly ripe frame edged with stony depth that signals the Sierra’s potential. Rich almond tones come in at the end.”
