Community Tasting Notes 10

    May 8, 2019 - Lots and lots of acidity on the initial pallete. More fresh than aged fruits ........ and certainly more apricot & brioche than pear and cream on the initial palette. Make no mistake however that the finish is more smoothing and creamy than the initial and mid palette. It's just that the initial palette is so memory consuming.

    That said the wine is light to medium weight and yet so strikingly crisp that it makes me wonder.... if blind tasted would I say that this is a young and lighter Chateau-Neuf du Pape red ?

    On the finish the wine is so balanced. I was expecting to have an eye cringing sour reaction but none existed. Strong and ample amounts of apricot, apricot nut, and lemon, and then some papaya, and then kiwi fruit. WOW Just so many flavors. Fab wine !!!!

    November 24, 2018 - Previous notes from last month still apply. Some air helped to round-out the texture and provide additional depth of flavor. By hour two it was delivering an especially gorgeous mix of creamy, ripe fruit (pear, apple, honeydew) housed in a moderately zippy frame. No pucker factor here. The core became more richly pronounced, but without sacrificing much-needed speed and energy.

    Paired great with cast iron turkey and pesto pizza rolls (nice use of T-Day leftovers). 93-94 points.

    October 28, 2018 - Consistent with prior notes.
    Made by Pott in amphora.
    Color of light yellow, pale straw.
    Scents and tastes consistent as melon, lemon citrus and pear.
    Really nice all around.
    Wife really enjoys this too.

    October 19, 2018 - Pear, honeydew, white peach, and some yellow citrus. Smooth and round (especially for the varietal), with a silky mouthfeel and delicate grip. Seemingly lower in its display of acid and frame, but still managing to hold its plush fruit all together in a nice, clean package. Less of a crisp and zippy Viognier; more of a weightier (but soft teddybear cuddly) texture and warm hug mouthfeel than most Viogniers. Drink now and over the next couple of years.
