2009 Long Gamma Cellars White Blend – Sonoma County

The color is a clear, bright pale yellow, with a slight green hue. I had expected the Viognier to dominate the nose with its typical fragrant, floral aromas, but was clearly able to detect the Sauvignon blanc. The hints of grassiness and grapefruit are there, just a bit subdued. Interwoven are subtle citrus, peach, and honey aromas. In the mouth the three varietals meld together splendidly with layers of peach, subtle lime, and green apple. A touch of minerality and wet stone mid palette. Great mouth feel and excellent balance, that ends in a lingering, slightly mouth watering finish, pleasing acidity. Read the full review on Simple Hedonisms.

2008 Cowhorn Vineyard Spiral 36, Applegate Valley

Blend of Viognier 35%, Marsanne 30%, Roussanne 35% grapes. This wine is made at the certified biodynamic Cowhorn winery with natural yeasts and no malolactic fermentation. Light golden color with great clarity. Apple and pear flavors with some delicious honeysuckle on the nose. Refreshing acids make it a solid choice for roast chicken.
