2007 Pine Ridge Chenin Blanc-Viognier
90 points in the Wine Advocate's "Value Issue": "2007 Chenin Blanc/Viognier is a beauty, very perfumed (flowers, melons, tropical fruits), medium-bodied, super pure, with no oak and a dry, crisp finish. Drink it over the next year." (08/08) And, according to Wine Spectator: "Offers pretty jade blossom and peach aromas, with subtle green apple, pebble and lime flavors. Drink now." (07/08) A truly fabulous California blend - combing the best of the Loire and the best of the Rhône to create a wine as light and sun-drenched as the Golden State. White flowers and sweet exotic lychee fruit complement subtler citrus aromas on this chenin blanc-viognier blend. Bright on the palate, fresh pear and citrus flavors are framed by clean, refreshing acidity. The wine's off-dry style lends a touch of sweetness to the otherwise grapefruit-kissed, crisp finish.
