The Crusher 2007 Viognier California

Viognier [VEE oh NYAY] is a finicky, difficult grape to nail down. The French version tastes austere and steely but smells like blooming jasmine. California viognier, however, often has a slight sweetness and intense floral aromas, like in this wine. Perfumey wafts of orange blossoms lead into rich, luxuriant honeysuckle, sweet apricot and pear. Smooth and creamy texture on the palate, with a wet stone minerality that lasts through the finish.4 stars out of 5. Sweetness=3 out of 10 (dry to sweet). $15
