Wine Review: Cline North Coast 2010 Viognier

I must admit that I am not a big fan of Viognier. But this wine had just the right amount of residual sugar that made it quite appealing to me. I like the acidity and how it tapered the sugar level on the palate. This wine is a straw color. The nose is very aromatic, with aromas of peaches, apricots citrus (orange blossoms) and hints of honey. The palate had a full, rich mouth feel, and the same fruit and honeyed flavors were on the palate. There was a bit of acidity that gave this wine balance and a nice finish. This wine would be great with pork, chicken or shrimp with an apricot or peach glaze. I also think it would pair well with the Food Network recipe link below.  Note:  This wine was a sample provided by Cline Cellars SRP $ 12.00
