Seven Hills Winery Viognier Columbia Valley 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Very nicely aromatic with hints of grilled pineapple over perfumed floral undertones and a bed of French toast dusted with vanilla, cinnamon and maple. A touch of wood sweetness greets the tongue. This firms up quickly to show good tension and acid spine supporting rather rich, fairly opulent floral peach fruit. There’s a touch more pineapple on the back end along with a hint of lemongrass before this drifts away on the firm and fairly long finish. Really well made, they really nailed this even if it’s not my style. 91pts

Lovely honey notes on the invade the nose and are surrounded by peachy aromas. Sweet and refreshing- perfect summer sipping wine! Structured and a bit more complex with hints of lemon rind

Floral, sweet, oaky. Peach and some honey and a little spice.

Buttery with floral and oak flavors. Smooth and would be a great backyard go-to in the summer!

I rate this review at 0 glasses. One post for the 2008 vintage says the wine comes from "Columbia Valley in Washington". Another for the 2010 cites, "USA>Oregon>Columbia Valley". Did the vines move?
