Plenty of respect
Today’s 2010 Fess Parker Rodney’s Vineyard Viognier is a delightfully refreshing and elegant wine that our tasting panel went wild for.
This wine graces the nose with a bouquet of fresh flowers and a basket of fresh fruits. On the palate, the wine is soft, elegant and simply delicious.
Decanting this wine allows it not only to breathe, but also to warm slightly. Served too cold, this wine is shy and reserved. As it warms in the decanter or the glass, it unleashes more flavor. The feel also becomes softer and more elegant.
This wonderful wine is sunshine in a bottle.
Pale straw yellow with a viscous quality that leaves wine clinging to the edges of the glass when swirled.
Very fresh and fragrant with lemon leaf, honeysuckle, lemon curd, softly yeasty white flower with very subtle jasmine, gardenia and subtle flint.
Softly creamy, lush and bright with Meyer lemon, elegant lemon curd, lime leaf and a lovely hint of flinty mineral.
Long and flavorful with prolonged citrus and nectarine flavors. A very subtle hint of flint and white pepper persists at the end.
Pair this beautiful wine with sauteed scallops with asparagus or a Waldorf salad with fresh apple, walnuts and dried cranberries with a light vinaigrette.
