àMaurice Cellars 2010 Viognier from the columbia valley finds it's way into my hand. as soon as I release this genie from the bottle notes of lemon and hints of oak fill my nose. drinking white is always a change of pace for me and this white perfectly hails in the transition. bright, fresh, flavors of peaches and nectarines excite the pallete before giving way to a full, slightly voluminous finish. Hello Summer.
I examine the pale gold juice in my glass. like looking into a crystal ball I can see the sun rise of the long warm days of summer fun that will soon consume my days. pausing before I drink it all in, I cheers myself. Life is good and it's about to get better. along the way we'll have plenty of fine wine to enjoy.
