 Tasted by dclyons on 6/23/2014 & rated 87 points: got it for around $5 at trader joe's and would get it again (755 views)
 Tasted by brigcampbell on 1/13/2014: On the roller coaster. Slight petrol aroma and flavor right around the wine. It didn't turn me off as it was paired with a strongly marinated king salmon. Light sweet yellow tree fruit and medium plus weight. (1125 views)
 Tasted by brigcampbell on 12/25/2013: The bottle variation is mind boggling. This bottle was terrific and varietially correct. This bottle is a super value but after three bottles,none remotely similar, it's tough to recommend. (1013 views)
 Tasted by brigcampbell on 9/9/2013 & rated 82 points: Got some petrol notes which leads you to believe this is a Riesling. Sweet pear flavor and not enough acid to balance. (1155 views)
 Tasted by Mike Kopanski on 5/12/2013 & rated 86 points: The Blue Fin Pinot Noir was so well received that I decided to try their 2012 Viognier. I was afraid this would prove to be something syrupy sweet and flabby, and am glad to be wrong. This is not textbook Viognier. The nose actually has the smell of Granny Smith apple acidity with less floral notes than I expected. There is a bitter, but not all the way decimating, start, to the honeysuckle influenced peach, pear, and pineapple fruit. That bitter flavor extends through the mid palate in a just cracked walnut shell sort of way. As you drink down the glass, this wine grows on you in a raw, but tasty way. Honey and acid on the finish. (1164 views)
 Tasted by brigcampbell on 5/10/2013: Faint yellow. It doesn't follow the profile of a viognier, more like a sauvignon blanc with sweet tree fruit and not a lot of acid. Enjoyable none the less. Perfect sangria mixer. (638 views)

California Wines (Wine Institute of California)

California is one of the most diverse wine regions in the world, with almost 100 grape varieties grown in over 100 viticultural areas, including dozens of ­different microclimates and soil types, as well as a very individualistic set of ­winemakers, many with international experience, which adds to and deepens that diversity.
