Saddleback Cellars Viognier Clarksburg 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A bit hot on the nose with waxy dried fruits, dried peach and notes of vanilla, fennel and mint. Pretty large scaled on entry. An impression of sweetness on the front end is followed by a fairly bright mid-palate delivering simple, plush sweet flavors of peach fruit and pink flowers. Finishes a bit hot and short with some pink grapefruit inner mouth perfumes before the alcohol fully takes over. 86pts

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

Whoa, honey! Step back a little on that will ya? Don't worry, I do admire your solidity and crafted structure of that honey mixed with some ripe peaches. Try this with blue cheese - you'll find a sweet spot!

Not too agressive for a New World style. Integrated floral aromas with some vanilla and apricot. Medium-bodied, slightly viscous. Rounds off with citrus zest in the finish.

Floral but deeper than some other Viognier.
