Miner Viognier 2009

Member Review by cma238:

A perfect way to turn someone onto the viognier grape: Delicious bright banana and mango, unctuous texture. Bright and happy. A great summer afternoon wine.

Miner Family Vineyards is a dynamic family owned winery tucked into the eastern hills of the Oakville appellation, squarely within the heart of Napa Valley. Founded in 1998 by Dave & Emily Miner along with his folks Ed & Norma, Miner is defined first and foremost by a sensational portfolio of wines, wines consistently characterized by and committed to individualistic style and uncommon quality. In only a few short years, Miner has identified, sought and secured a number of California’s finest vineyard sites to produce and showcase a wide array of varietals. Each wine is crafted in a style to encapsulate the distinctive elements and the indelible fingerprints of their respective vineyards. This combination of excellent vineyard sites along with passionate and thoughtful winemaking injects the necessary components for creating profoundly joyful wines. Miner is also very much about people. It’s no secret to those in the know that the Miners have strived to and succeeded in surrounding themselves with the very best in the business. From the uncompromising talents of winemaker Gary Brookman and his companions in the cellar, to the fine folks in the tasting room, sales department and beyond, Dave & Emily have assembled a youthful and serious team of passionate and dedicated players. Just as faithfully committed are the numerous distributors, restaurant, retail partners and loyal fanatics that also faithfully share in Miner’s vision and commitment to quality matched by a burning passion for great food and wine. It is this level of determination, trust, passion and the occasional bit of hedonism that serves as the driving force behind each and every bottle of Miner. The wings of the Miner label also serve as an homage to family, heritage and place. Dave’s grandfather arrived in this country from Persia in 1914. His ancestry, tracing back numerous generations, leads to the people, culture and heritage of ancient Assyria. When Dave first bottled wine under his family’s name he looked to the roots of this family ancestry for inspiration. The Miner Family wine label is based on an ancient Assyrian relief in the image of a Winged Sun God. This symbol represents the brilliant light of the sun, which illuminates the life of mankind while providing energy and warmth to the grapevines. It also represents abundance and prosperity and brought life and health to the vines of the family’s distant ancestors. It is the hope that Miner Family Vineyards and those who enjoy their wines, will prosper with this good fortune for many years to come. On behalf of Miner Family Vineyards, we welcome all of you to join us in our ongoing search for bottled nirvana. To those that have and continue to support us along the way and to those who are trusting us now for a new discovery, we offer a humble debt of gratitude and a sincere thanks. Without you we are not.

I am not a huge white wine fan...but LOVE this Viognier. We first had a tasting at the Miner Family Vineyard in Napa...I liked it so much we went home with multiple bottles AND joined their wine club. My husband makes a delish cajun shrimp dish we like to pair with this Viognier. YUM!

I am a French Viognier fan - typically much more so than California versions. I had a sommelier in Las Vegas who agreed with me on this but convinced me to try this wine as they didn't have any French Viogniers by the glass. I was exceptionally pleased. It is very much in the French style. Not too citrusy. Smooth and soft on the palate. Just the right amount of floral and spice. Love, love, love it!!! One of my absolute favorites
