Mission Briefing

Codename:

Saddle up for Summer

Soft, refreshing and quite elegant, today’s 2010 Saddleback Cellars Viognier is the perfect summertime companion. Enjoy this freshly delicious wine all on its own, on a hot summer day, or with a wide variety of foods.

Nils Venge was the first California winemaker to garner a perfect 100 point score and he has since gone on to win numerous record-beating scores and accolades. He has certainly earned our admiration. In fact, last year we named Nils our Winemaker of the Year.

Today’s delicious wine is highly recommended, but it is also in short supply. We secured every last bottle for you, so please act quickly if you love great white wines.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Vibrant and bright golden hues with perfectly even coloration from core to edge.

Smell:

Sweet and tart with floral notes of acacia, lychee flower as well as notes of green apple, lemongrass, pear, dried apricot, lychee fruit and a hint of minerality. Just a touch of white pepper spice at the end.

Taste:

Soft and smooth on entry with an initial rush of citrus, lemongrass, persimmon, underripe pear and granite. At the back palate, a subtle hint of dried herbs de Provence mixes with subtle white pepper.

Finish:

Very bright and medium-long with a viscous feel that coats the palate with stonefruit and a hint of white pepper and subtle minerals.

Pairing:

Enjoy this plush, elegant wine with a Salad Niçoise or a fruit and cheese plate.
