Lot 118 Santa Barbara County Viognier 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes: Sweetly perfumed with aromas of orange Muscat, violets and jasmine. On the palate tropical, citrusy fruits of fresh pineapple, blood orange and honeysuckle finishing with fresh melon. This wine is literally sunshine in a glass. Great on a warm spring or summer day. Cameron Confidential: This wine comes to us from one of my favorite producers down on the central coast. In fact, I used to visit their tasting room often and actually attended classes in their tasting room quite often when I was a cellar rat down at Corbett Canyon many moons ago. Anyhow, both this wine and the Lot 117 grenache blanc/viognier are made from estate fruit grown in the highlands around Santa Barbara at elevations from 2800 to 3600 feet. This viognier is a main component in another blend selling for $30/bottle.

A great example of a Central Coast Viognier where the floral notes are quite intoxicating with a very singular jasmine overtone. The tropical fruit is also pronounced, big and lingering with guava and cantaloupe. Acid is very well balanced resulting is a nice, crisp "new world" viognier experience. This wine is going to be a real winner for the spring and summer months, and at under $15, you can't go wrong.
