The Crusher Wilson Vineyard Viognier 2007
This pale straw colored wine bears a slight glint of steely blue. Intense aromas of jasmine and clove unfold with hints of apricot and peach. The palate has a luscious, nectar like texture, abundant with apricot grit and sweet white peach flavors, and a finish of star anise, vanilla and juicy Bartlett pear. This Viognier naturally pairs with Asian cuisine. Enjoy it with Vietnamese chicken sandwich with pickled carrots and cilantro served with green papaya salad, Vegetable Thai curry over jasmine rice or Japanese Miso infused sea bass with a seaweed salad.
Editorial Reviews for The Crusher Wilson Vineyard Viognier
Lemon drop fruit with a touch of green herb, fennel, lime leaf, talcum powder and hint of vanilla adding complexity on the nose. Rather light in the mouth with juicy plum/ peach profile, but very floral in the mouth with admirable freshness. Finishes a touch bitter with a bit of apple seed bitterness offering contrast against the lingering fruit tones. 87pts

huge honeysuckle aromas followed by hay, citrus, and honey flavors. Creamy in the midpalate, with a bright, zingy finish. Nice value at $13.
I have been looking for a Viognier of this quality since I tasted a similar wine in Canada. I will be seeking out this wine. Greg has much better descriptions than I can possibly match. This wine is exquisite. It was recommended by Snooth. I love this wine and will be seeking it out for some time. Thanks
