Not quite as fruity as the 2012 but melon and honeysuckle on the nose with a touch of pineapple and well balanced.

Unoaked and balanced white, nice acid without being tart. Fragrant and pleasantly fruity.

Aromas of peach, lychee, a bit of orange blossom, and general floral. Flavors of peach, stone fruit, wet stone, and a touch of honey. A bit of bitterness was distracting.

This excellent value winery has turned out a straightforward, honeyed apricot-scented, fresh, light to medium-bodied 2008 Viognier that is meant to be consumed over the next six months.

Floral and focused, with bright peach, lemon and tangy apple flavors that will show well with food. Drink now through 2003.

It is difficult to find inexpensive Viognier, but Cline Cellars' 2010, while not quite as interesting as their Pinot Gris, is certainly an authentic Viognier. Notes of white peach, apricot jam, honeysuckle and assorted tropical fruits emerge from this fresh, light to medium-bodied white along with crisp underlying acidity. At this price, it's a steal. Moreover, there are 25,000 cases available.

Easy to like with butter, caramel, peach and tangy citrus flavors through the finish. Drink now.

Tasty peach, apricot and citrus peel notes are light-bodied and refreshing, yet still balanced with focus and concentration. Drink now.

A delightfully crisp wine that is bursting with tropical fruits and spices. It’s brilliant as an apéritif, but its freshness will also brighten up just about any meal you can think of.
