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
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 http://tv.winelibrary.com/2008/04/10/washington-wine-library-tv-episode-441/It 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.
