2013 Viognier
California $11

99 SOBON ESTATE
2013 Viognier
Amador County $16
This is one of the best viogniers we’ve tasted in a long time! Fresh tropical fruit, peach, pear, honeysuckle and fresh meadow (after a rain) aromas belt you in the nose. This wine has wonderful character – spicy, feisty, zesty and a palate you wish would never end. If you want to taste what a true viognier should taste like, buy this!

99 VIE
2011 Roussanne

98 ROBLAR
2013 Roussanne
Sonoma County $30
Floral spices, tropical fruit, nectarine, apricot, grapefruit and pear aromas with a dusting of light white pepper spice. Made true to the varietal, this is a floral, fruit-driven wine that mimics viognier but stays distinctive in its slightly tight-ish body but long lingering stone fruit finish. (tasted 3/28/15)

96 MEADOWCROFT
2011 Viognier
North Coast $28
Hey, a viognier that actually smells and tastes like a viognier (and not chardonnay)! Pretty tropical fruit, citrus, peach, mango, apricot wrapped in floral spices and a hint of oak. Fruit-forward on the palate, this is a well-balanced wine with a nice, long finish.

96 THE WINERY SF
2011 Viognier
North Coast $22
A beautifully-balanced, superb fruit-forward wine, with tropical, stone citrus fruit flavors complemented by floral elements and light flint. On the palate, this is a crisp, clean, fruit-filled wine ending with a nice, long lingering finish.
