2006 denner viognier
"It would be difficult to find a better California Viognier than Denner's 2006 Viognier Estate. Revealing a French Condrieu-like minerality in its exotic bouquet of crushed rocks, white flowers, litchi nuts, tropical fruits, and orange rind, its superb richness, wonderful acidity, fabulous fruit, and full-bodied style provide a profound Viognier tasting experience. Enjoy it over the next 1-2 years. Denner Vineyards is still under the radar, but is undoubtedly an up-and-coming source for good Rhone Ranger offerings. And why shouldn't it be as its vineyards are situated just across the street from the fabulous grand cru site of Saxum's James Berry Vineyard."
