California wine with California crab

The local San Francisco Dungeness crab season has arrived, a really big deal for us! Usually, I go with a French wine from the Loire or Champagne, but I have an out-of-state guest. What's your favorite California wine to drink with crab? Or do you stick to beer?

I've always liked the Pacific Rim Dry Riesling (Bonny Doon Vineyard) with seafood.

Sparkling wine cuts through butter and garlic really well. For a special occasions, Domaine Chandon étoile Brut and étoile Rosé are two of my favorites.
