Wine and dine: Outback, Dry Creek

wineManagement at Outback Steakhouse will wait on tables on March 4 and 11, giving the staff a night off, as part of a fundraiser for the Friedreich’s Ataxia Research Alliance, a disease of the nervous system.

• Wine of the week: Dry Creek Dry Chenin Blanc 2011 ($10) is an example of what can be done when a winemaker takes chenin blanc seriously — lots of white fruit aromas, a little lemon peel fruit, and a sort of slate-like, fruit pit finish. Available at Spec’s.
