Rather clear and precise on the nose, with lemon, treacle, and honeycomb fruit topped with sweet, almost violet floral aromas and a mango top note. Creamy orange and lemon flavors and aromas pop on entry, followed by a nice hint of creamy honey and lightly spicy floral notes with an edge of peach on the back end that leads to a clean, clear and vibrant peach and Meyer lemon finish. This has a lovely texture with just a hint of richness draped over vibrant green plummy fruit. 88 points

Start to finish a good mix of flavors. Good balance of fruit, floral, earth, and neither sweet nor dry. Pleasant, somewhat lingering finish. A pear blend flavor at start heading more to the florals before the complex finish. (free tasting tonight at 4 Flights Wine Boutique; bought more than one bottle as an indication of how much enjoyed)

Decent enough chenin blanc/viognier with some light lemon zest, white grapefruit and subtle floral notes. Not much of a nose and not too complex but nice acidity and medium finish.

Clear, bright yellow straw hue with modest aromas of stone fruits and honeysuckle; abundant flavor notes across a bright and rich palate of apple-pear, peach and lemon over a bright and lush, moderately long and pleasing finish. Great value alternative to all the same chardonnay!

Clear, straw bright, with aromas of fresh summer stone fruits and white flowers; moderate flavor notes of grapefruit, green plum and tart green pear across modest acidity and less viscosity in mouthfeel than expected, to a refreshing, but short finish.

Expressive pear, citrus and mineral for $10. Nice sweetness when chilled, not cloying, just right. Patio perfection.

Pine Ridge Vineyards in the Stags Leap District of Napa Valley has been growing Chenin Blanc since they started out. It’s always been a good wine for them with nice acidity and citrus flavors but they discovered that when they blend in Viognier it takes on a whole new dimension. Now the wine is wildly popular and gets rave reviews every vintage. The blend or this 2011 is 79% Chenin Blanc and 21% Viognier. It shows bright tropical fruit flavors like mango and pineapple along with tangy citrus that's bright and lively.

The 2011 bottling of this distinctive blend opens with a dazzling spectrum of fruit and floral aromas, from crisp white peach, honeyed pear and sweet mango, to touches of fresh jasmine blossom and white chai tea.
