Wine down Wednesday

So you are probably reading this whilst I am out enjoying Happy Hour with my office at The Paddock In Devon today and hopefully able to try out some different wines. But this week, I got to try out another Viognier, this one

Cougar Crest Viognier from Cougar Crest Estate Winery in Walla Walla Valley, sounds like it should be Australian, bit it is actually West coast Washington State. This is the 2007 vintage. As you may remember i had a bottle of the Cline Winery Viognier last week and to be honest was underwhelmed. This had much more flavor, way more fruit on the nose and was a nice heavy wine as you drank it. It left me with a little of a metallic taste in the mouth, which I found odd, but ended up watching this wine library tv tasting of the 2006 wine and Gary V mentions the taste of a stone, and that would approximate what I had at the end. Check it out is the second wine he tries, worth watching. What I like about these wines is their fruit flavor, very intense, with big bold flavor and a slight spiciness to them as well. So if you can find this in your local state store, if you are from PA or your local wine store elsewhere, give it a try.

Thanks for the tip on a good West Coast wine - they are getting better all the time.

Jeff - I have my favourites, when we lived in the UK we had a small coal cellar, that doubles as our wine cellar. You actually had to go outside to enter it. Those were the days, you could get so many discounts buying wine by the case in England. Here in PA nah, does not happen.

Georgina - Yes there are lots of good west coast wines, I just have to adjust to what some of these bottles cost sometimes, I find so many wines just don't have any weight to them, so it is great when you find something that really sits on your tongue and is enjoyable.
