| 10Knots Cellars California Sextant Wines Viognier 2010 750ML 12 Pack|
Paso Robles, California
Not many white wines can offer the complexity that the 2010 10knots Viognier expresses while also being so easy to enjoy. Honey dew melons, hawthorn blossoms, and apricots are plentiful and held wonderfully together with medium-bodied structure. The Viognier varietal by itself makes for a distinct wine, but blending Marsanne and Roussanne grapes, to take a cue from Northern Rhone tradition, infuses almond highlights and slightly grassy notes as well as whetstone characteristics. Finally, a small percentage of Grenache Blanc is like the lemon twist dropped into a top-shelf Martini - it complements the blend, adds to the stimulating finish, and brings to mind a place for everything and everything in its place.
