2007 Rosenblum Kathy's Curvee Viongier
2007 Rosenblum Kathy's Cuvee Viognier
Tried this in the tasting room in Alameda a few months ago. I remember liking it, and almost buying it, but not wanting to spend $18 for it at the time. However, I've seen it on sale all around recently, and will probably pick up a bottle this week. The cheapest I've seen it is at Nob Hill in Alameda for $10, IIRC. Safeway had it for around $15.
On the nose, the wine showed a nice fruit bowl dominated with peaches and apricot. In the mouth it was initially chalky, followed with dried fruits, such as apricots. Spicy finish.
It's a nice, interesting white wine that would go well with a lot of foods, and if you haven't had a Viongier before, it would be a good place to start.
