WTN: Cedarville {Viognier} '15.....(short/boring)

by TomHill » Tue Nov 28, 2017 12:39 pm

Getting ready to place my Cedarville order, thought I'd give last yr's {Viognier} a try:
1. CedarvilleVnyd {Viognier} Estate/ElDorado (14.3%; www.CedarvilleVineyard.com) Fairplay 2015: Med.yellow color; very fragrant pear/Viog/peach slight earthy bit floral/carnations fairly spicy/nutmeg quite attractive nose; fairly tart bright/Viog/pear/ripe peach/floral/spicy light earthy/chalky quite attractive flavor; lightly tart quite long elegant/restrained ripe/pear/Viog/peach/spicy slight earthy finish; an elegant/bright/lithe expression of Viog well far away from DollyParton territory; reminds a lot of TablasCreek Viog, some of EdmundsStJohn Viog, some of CollinesRodannies Viog; a lovely elegant expression of Calif Viog at a great price. $21.00

1. I have, of course, followed Jonathan&Susan's Cedarville from the very start, when they first showed their wines at HdR many a year ago. The early Viogniers could sometimes be a bit on the fat/porky/overripe side, but I think they've pretty well got it dialed in these days.
