Four Brix Smitten Rhone White California 2009

Member Review by Tyler Worth:

87 points. On the nose there are bright aromas of pomelo and grapefruit flavored candy. There is a generous amount of sea stone, some bubblegum components, and a unique fruitiness that is somewhere between acai berry and blueberry. It’s somewhat minerally, and there is a certain carbon/graphite edge running through it. The palate is slightly nutty with a nice, delicate creaminess. There are some soft white peach tones, and a subtle, somewhat tropical, floral quality that runs into the finish. This is a reserved wine, and it does not have the explosive, over the top expressiveness that many Viognier blends do. This would be a good wine to enjoy with a triple cream brie or a light pasta dish with a cream sauce. Nothing enormously complex, but well done and solid for the style, a very food friendly wine, and one worth trying.
