Wilson Vineyards Chenin Blanc-Viognier, Clarksburg 2006

I have enjoyed this wine for a number of years but this is the first time I will be reviewing it. Wilson Vineyards has been reviewed a couple of time on my blog, mainly their Petite Sirah (I am a sucker for a good Petite). This blend of Chenin blanc and Viognier is quite nice and reminds me of the Pine Ridge Chenin-Viognier which also comes from the Wilson vineyards. This wine has a nice bright and vibrant color to it and shows tropical fruit and honeysuckle on the nose with tart green apple aroma peaking through. The palate switches things up a bit giving some sweeter peach and pear flavors with a cream component and finishes slightly off-dry but with a good balance of acidity. I see this wine as a great fall season food wine. I am thinking of Thanksgiving turkey and ham already.

Overall, I like this new vintage and at $10 it's a great value.
I give it a B+.

Do you still check the comments on your blog? I met you a LONG time ago, but recall that you used to do winetasting parties?

Do you still do this, or do you recommend any companies in the Atlanta area that do?

Hey Stephen, yea I still do tastings. Although I am moving out of the Atlanta area on March 22nd, back to CA to make wine. So if you want to do a tasting shoot me an email.
