Twisted Oak Viognier Calaveras County 2010

External Review:

“It’s like going into a department store, and before your can say ‘Stop!’ some perky thing in a floral print blasts you with the latest from Yves St. Ralph!” Not this Viognier! Sure, you will detect a hint of jasmine, but apricots and grapefruit take center stage upstairs in the aroma Dept. Meanwhile, in the Flavor Dept. (1st floor, just past Lingerie), you’ll taste those apricots and grapefruits along with a touch of clove spice. Perfect for your holiday, or everyday, shopping experience!

A lingering moment on the palate yields a near-perfect blend of sweetness and acidity that I find most refreshing. With a balanced astringency and a super-silky, almost chewy mouthfeel, plus a taste of allspice and white raisins, this wine breathes, tastes, and feels like a wine that my friends (and yours) will find memorable, whether on a Summer day or a Fall evening. As for the finish, I say “hello” to only an acquaintance of acidity and tannin. I like Viognier this way — tapered layers of sweetness, structure, and finish. And I’m not typically a white wine drinker.

The 2007 Calaveras County Viognier is also a good choice from this twisted winery for those who enjoy a light refreshing white. I love a good citrusy Viognier (I usually find them too sweet) and this fits the bill. You will also get a hit of other fine fruits without it being a fruit bomb. I do not like super fruity or sweet whites. This one was the perfect balance of fruit and citrus without being too dry or too sweet.......just right! This wine is a perfect wine to begin your evening with and enjoy into dinner. This wine will not disappoint!

Seriously good. Aromas and flavors characteristic of the varietal: flowers, citrus, intriguing notes of mandarin orange. Well balanced, with sweet attack yet dry in the mouth.
