2009 Deep Sea Viognier, Santa Barbara County, CA, $26 (S) – Rating 4.0
Bring on the summer. This Viognier by Deep Sea Wines is an elegant yet sexy wine ready for the patio. The flavors of stone fruit, pear, white peach, riverstone and a flinty minerality are well integrated with a soft floral nose into a wine you won’t ignore. Partial oak aging adds to the complexity and adds a richness to the mouthfeel.
