From 375. Deep amber color. The nose is straight summertime. Peach and apricots- in season. Medium bodied. What a fascinating bottle of wine. I haven't tasted much Viognier with residual sugar, but it is a mind bender. Tuscan melon, honey, pear and apricot with the edginess of Viognier lurking about. Medium to long finish.
Many other CT tasters have found this over the hill, I found this much more interesting and enjoyable once it warmed a bit and got some air. I'm counting myself lucky to have had a good bottle.
Rhone Tasting (Our house): Medium gold colored and hints of a slightly darker amber. The nose just gave me apricots. The wine was not overly sweet at all and not cloying or unctous. Very lively and fresh tasting fruits. Just barely enough acidity to give it a little zing. Otherwise it would have boardered on boring. I have absolutely ZERO experience with these kinds of wines so I hesitate to actually score it.
