Smoking Loon Viognier California 2007

External Review:

Smoking Loon Viognier has a wonderful aroma of apricot skin, wrapped around a core of sweet white nectarine. Overflowing with flavor on the palate, mango, orange marmalade, sun-soaked apricot, and grilled pineapple all make an impression on this wine. Full-bodied and rich, this California white finishes with notes of Meyer lemon and candied orange zest. Our winemaking team picked most of these vineyards very ripe at 24.5 Brix for enhanced floral fruit characteristics. Together with 3 months of sur lie aging on French oak, the result is a big, rich California Viognier style that is bursting with character.

Black rubber and wet gym socks on the nose. Sharp on the mid-pallette and mid/short finish.

Dry and crisp just like a Sauvignon Blanc, but with Viognier's blast of pineapple, nectarine and honeysuckle flavors. Appealing for the wealth of fruit and bright acidity that makes it so clean.

This is a great price for a fresh, clean wine with such fruity complexity. Floods the mouth with peach, apple, pineapple and spice flavors that are ripe and rich, but remains dry and stylish. From Don Sebastiani & Sons, a temendous value that takes advantage of California's big supply of grapes. This veteran family knows how to make, and market, good wine.

Clean and refreshing with spicy pear, apple and citrus notes that are rich and complete.

Nutty, spicy and floral aromas with a rich, oily texture, and pleasant but modest fruit flavors that finish with a distinctly fennel note. Drink now.

Clean, crisp and snappy, this wine is refreshingly lean, with just enough of the dry white peach flavors that are the grapersquo;s calling card. Fill an ice chest and take a few bottles to your next cookout.
