Northwest Cellars 2015 Viognier, Snipes Mountain, $19

By on October 21, 2016

northwest-cellars-viognier-2015-bottleUpland Vineyard on Snipes Mountain in the heart of the Yakima Valley is the reliable resource for Robert Delf’s Viognier. This example serves as a delicious alternative to Chardonnay as aromas of ripe apple, vanilla and light toast pick up hints of buttermilk, lemongrass and jasmine. There’s pleasing roundness on the approach to the palate with rich flavors of Golden Delicious apple and white peach, backed by richness, a touch of oak and a nibble of pear skin.
