International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 144

($75; a 50/50 blend of viognier and roussanne, co-fermented) Bright color. Compelling aroma of lemon, white peach, minerals, crushed stone and licorice. Dense, spicy and aromatic, with a lovely edge of acidity framing and lifting the creamy flavors of peach nectar, spices, rock and minerals. (The wine goes through full malolactic fermentation, but then neither of these varieties begins with much malic acidity, notes Kongsgaard.) Incidentally, Kongsgaard recommends drinking this wine within two years for its aromatic qualities. This was bottled after ten months in barrel, along with the 2006 chardonnays. Kongsgaard ages it in his two-year-old chardonnay barrels.

Really underwhelming bottle. I like roussane and CdP Blancs in general. This was just too funky and had a strange aftertaste. Perhaps it was a bad bottle but I know storage was perfect and it didn't have a whiff of vinegar. I have one more in the cellar. Hoping it is much better. Not rating this because I don't have a numerical score for down the drain.
