Tasting note for 2011 Edwin Dyer Viognier from the Rogue Valley AVA in Oregon. Plush and tropical; recommended.
Lugana sounds like a fairy tale. But a real nightmare now threatens: the high-speed train. According to plans made over 20 years ago, a part of the TAV route that connects Milan and Verona will pass right through the vineyards of Lugana.
Young, bright, and refreshing, with enough complexity to match many meals. Highly Recommended (93).
