Cline Viognier 2005

  • Area: California, Sonoma
  • Grape: Viognier
  • Alcohol: 13.5%
  • Rating: Black; 87 Dilettante; 88
Description: The nose is unobtrusive with hints of flowers and mango. Glycerin supports flavors of flowers, melon, peach and apricots that play nicely across the tongue. The lingering finish has a pineapple zip that beautifully balances the wine's light sweetness. Careful not to over chill this beauty.

Food Pairing:
Spicy coconut based Thai, richly prepared seafood dishes such as langoustines in a ginger cream sauce.
