Goes beautifully with figs and procuitto, steamed clams, lobster boil with sweet corn, fresh bean salad with Dijon mustard and savory herbs, spicy Thai noodles, skate wing in brown butter and capers, chicken curry, grilled rabbit, Thanksgiving turkey and all the stuffing. For an extravagant pairing, try the Viognier with foie gras and a peach or apricot chutney. And for desert, exotic fruit sorbets or sliced white peaches and Viognier sabayon.

Wine Tasting NotesThis wine is like pure perfume. It begins with honey, white peach and wildflower aromas, which lead to full, ripe, lingering flavors. It is very stylish with just a very slight veneer of oak. It gushes richness, but is balanced by clean, crisp, bright, naturally lively acidity. This is our most floral Viognier to date.

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes on the Iron Horse Cuvee R Viognier Blend Wine Alexander Valley 2006 : WINEMAKER NOTES: The wine smells exactly like the vineyard in spring when the Buckeye and Manzanitas are in bloom, which imnpart a white blossom - honeyed aroma, with fresh baby grass and wild iris underfoot. Raw zucchini salad with rice wine vinaigrette, eggplant crostini, anything to do with tomatoes and basil, bay scallop ceviche in butter lettuce cups, crab tacos, Florida Stone Crabs, grilled chicken Pad Thai, grilled plums with shiso. The New York Times named this the number one white wine for Thanksgiving. IRON HORSE CUVEE R VIOGNIER BLEND WINE ALEXANDER VALLEY 2006
