Wine 9: Desert Wind 2009 Viognier. From Washington’s Wahluke Slope. Aromas of honeysuckle with lemon and lime flavors. Pale straw. $15? Worth it.
Wine 10: 2009 Poet’s Leap Riesling. Omigod, this is it. This is the white wine for me. Not the strongest aroma, but they get lacy gorgeous acidity and truth in flavor by picking the grapes at around 20 brix. Impressive. $20.
Wine 11: 2009 Big House White Octavin. Light gold, honeysuckle aroma, lychee flavors, fab acidity. $22 for 3 liters. Great value. #WBC10.
Wine 12: 2008 Maryhill Winery Viognier. Stainless steel fermented with a touch of oak. Peaches and cream with good acidity for a viognier (which are typically flabby. $12.
