Viognier

Yes, that peachy dream of a wine has weaseled its way into almost everyone’s hearts. I like the floral and peachy aromatics of most Viognier, but find that they don’t always deliver enough richness on the palate, unless you consider alcohol to be sufficient in and of itself.

With the right dishes, Viognier can do a fine job of defending itself. It has the intensity to rise above its partners, lending a wonderful top note to all the pumpkin, yams, cranberries and carrots you might serve during the Thanksgiving feast.

    MacMurray is one of the best values in Pinot Noir. Very affordable and delicious.

    No argument with any of your calls.

    Not on your list, but a darned good, very widely available Chardonnay--La Crema Sonoma Coast 2009. Very good with or without food and a good buy. At my local grocery store (I know, it's totally gauche to buy wine at a supermarket.) if you have their frequent shoppers card (these days you have to carry five or six of them), and you buy six bottles (10% off), it coms to less than $12 per bottle.
