Lewis Grace Viognier 2009

Member Review by shsim:

This is part of Apple Hill, El Dorado, beginning at Grace Patriot wines and covering Lava Cap, Crystal Basin, Jack Russell Brewing, Boa Vista and Madroña in the same area. This tasted like a standard Viognier, although it did not have much nose, which is disappointing because it is something to look forward to when tasting a Viognier as they are known to be floral and wonderful scenting. It was overal decent but not smooth. I did not think it was worth it for $22. For more on the tasting, please visit http://dionyshius.blogspot.com/2012/07/el-dorado-hills-grace-patriot-wines.html

A lovely dry silky smooth wine from the Rhone region of France. It is pale straw in color with a huge floral, peachy aroma in a medium body. The flavors carry through and bloom in the mouth with apricot and honey. By recommendation, I had this wine with friends at the Sierra Nevada House for dinner. I paired it with their dish Shrimp and Andouille over Pappardelle. Delicious!
