3 Horse Ranch Vineyards 2014 Vivacious, Snake River Valley, $18

By on November 26, 2015

3-horse-ranch-vineyards-vivacious-2014-labelRhône Valley varieties continue to thrive in Idaho’s Snake River Valley, and this blend of Viognier (76%) and Roussanne make by Greg Koenig for the Cunninghams quickly became one of the best sellers for 3 Horse Ranch Vineyards. It’s clean and bright from start to finish with notes of Asian pear and Golden Delicious apple, backed by ample acidity and citrus pith. Enjoy alongside Gwyneth Paltrow’s Grilled Halibut and Mango-Avocado Salsa, Wild Mushroom Risotto or linguini with clam sauce. This earned a silver medal at the 2015 Idaho Wine Competition.
