Airfield Estates 2014 Viognier, Yakima Valley, $15

airfield-estates--viognier-2014-bottleBest Buy! Traditionally, Marcus Miller steers the Viognier from his family’s 860-acre vineyard into bottlings such as the popular Flygirl White. This time, however, he chose to showcase the white Rhône grape and offers it with a program that includes 10 percent neutral French oak. It comes with a theme of orange blossom, mango, orange Creamsicle and a hint of butter, making for a round and rich midpalate of lemon yogurt. That solid fruit core finishes with orange pith for food-friendly balance. Look for this in Seattle at Esquin Wine & Spirits.

    You should try Plumb Cellars Viognier. All estate fruit, no residual. Crisp and delicious!
