Opened by Allred with cheese course. A touch less than previous bottles, but I think it may have been served a tad too cold for my tastes. All my previous notes mention that I enjoyed this as it warmed, but it was a bit chilly last night on the deck, and there more of us drinking, thus it never really did get a chance to warm up after opening. Still a beauty.
Deep yellow color. Florals, peach and ripe pear notes. Waxy and viscous, with flavors of quince, pear and honeysuckle. Long finish; nice balance. At peak IMO, but should hold for a short while. Drink now-2017.
PnP, 50F. Light yellow slightly reticent nose with floral notes, peach, apricot and mineral. light to medium body and crisp with moderate finish. restrained fruit and mineral on the palate. Enjoyable. More a cross between sauvignon blanc than viognier; a lless full bodied / more acid. Nice alternative white!

(Maison Bleue Notre Vie Viognier Arthur's Vineyard Yakima Valley) An aromatically compelling wine with white peach, honeysuckle, cream, spice, and mineral notes. The palate is full and drawn out with a textured feel and crisp flavors with a pronounced spice and citrus filled finish. Retains an incredible sense of lightness while still displaying great depth. 100% Viognier. Sample provided by winery.
