Graff Family Vineyards Chalone 2009 Viognier,
$12.74-$22.99, 88 points, appears a light burnished brass color.
The aroma begins with this wine's hallmark trait, but also what I find to be somewhat disagreeable, that is alcohol, all 14.4% of it. Yeah, there is honeysuckle, green melon, light citrus notes with hints of lavender/lilac, a smooth near medium bodied white wine which is light on acidity, tastes better warmer than colder, and does so with flavors that follow the aroma, but except for the finish, the alcohol is just a bit too much for my palate.
Finishes crisp on heat and light spice.
