Pine Ridge 2007 Chenin Blanc-Viognier

  • Area: California, Napa Valley
  • Grape: 80% Chenin Blanc, 20% Viognier
  • Alcohol: 12.8%
  • Rating: Black; 90 Dilettante; 92 Nwjr; 92 The Z; 90
Description: The nose is fruity and floral with a hint of green olive. The attack is sweet with enough glycerin for a velvety smooth mouth-feel. On the palate there are notes of honey, peach, lychee, melon with enough citrus for nicely balanced lift. The pear finish is clean, crisp and lightly dry. This beautfully blended wine brings out the best characteristics of each grape. It sings.

Musical Pairing: Julee Cruise
Price: $10
