Pride Mountain Vineyards Viognier 2007
|Brand||Pride Mountain Vineyards|
Wine EnthusiastViognier is nothing if it's not rich, and who knows richness better than Bob Foley? This wine is an exotic treasure trove of pineapple tart, pear jam, apricot purée, honeysuckle, butterscotch and dusty Asian spice flavors, balanced with crisp acids and a steely, minerally finish.
Wine AdvocateThe outstanding 2007 Viognier is aged in neutral wood (two-thirds) and stainless steel (one-third), and is not put through malolactic, thus preserving its crisp acids. Aromas and flavors of honeysuckle, apricot liqueur, and a cocktail of assorted floral notes are found in this medium-bodied, refreshing Viognier. Enjoy it over the next 2-3 years.
Wine SpectatorRipe and rich, with spicy, toasty flavors and an orangy citrus note. Tobacco and cedar nuances frame the fruit flavors, with a persistent finish and a full body. Drink now.
