Tuesday Quick Sip – 2007 Preston Viognier

Megan and I picked this wine up about this time last year on our visit out to Sonoma/Napa, at Preston Vineyards. If you haven’t been, I recommend it, not only for the wine but for the experience. A beautiful place to have lunch as well as pick up some local veggies and eggs, that Preston grows and raise themselves. A very cool experience.

 

2007 Preston Viognier

The Facts:

Appellation: Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma

Soil: Predominately gravel & sand, along creek bed

Grape: 100% Viognier

Barrel Fermentation: 40%

Price: $28

My Tasting Notes:

Nose: apricot, sourdough, apple core, butterscotch

Taste: peach, honeysuckle, brown sugar and green tea

Mouthfeel: Full body, fat but clean

Finish: long with nice tropical fruit notes and lingering tea flavors

Great Viognier, very California in style with it’s big full body and rich viscous layers. Wish I had more of this, and unfortunately it’s a winery exclusive I can’t order anymore.

Cheers!
