Pride Mountain Vineyards Viognier 2006
|Region||California, Sonoma County|
|Brand||Pride Mountain Vineyards|
Wine AdvocateThe elegantly-styled 2006 Viognier reveals peach and apricot fruit notes along with crushed rocks, excellent texture, and a medium-bodied, surprisingly crisp personality. It should drink nicely for 1-2 years.
Wine EnthusiastThe gigantic flavors are there, showing the exotic, flamboyant side of Viognier. Peach, pineapple, kiwi, Key lime pie, honeysuckle blossom, roasted almond, smoky new oak and Asian spices lead to a dry, honeyed finish. There's an edgy awkwardness, though, that limits elegance. Might simply be too young. Best after mid-2008.
Wine SpectatorTangerine, apricot and nectarine flavors are vivid and racy, with a spicy finish and a juicy acidity. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 1,448 cases made.
