Bridlewood Estate Winery-Viognier-Reserve-Central Coast-California-2007-$15.99-Crisp citrus, floral nose, honey and peach flavors, light, not over oaked, nice acidity.  I just found this variety last year and enjoy it very much as a break from a Chardonnay, but not like a Pinot Gris which I dislike.  A great summer wine, great value for what it delivers.       RP-88      WS-86     CR-4-4.5     Good with chicken, any type of fish or shellfish, salad, cheeses, pasta. 

Rosenblum Cellars-Kathy‚Äôs Cuvee-Viognier-Sonoma-California-2007-$14.27-Spicy fruit citrus nose.  Nice golden color, peaches, citrus, nice acidity and smooth mouth feel.  A great summer wine when you desire a change from a Chard but what something with more body than a Pinot Gris or a  Sauvignon Blanc.     NR     CR-4     Good with chicken, seafood, pasta. 

Bodegas La Cana-Rias Baixas-Albarino-Spain-2008-$12.99-A crisp nose of bright citrus, light golden in color.  A refreshing white wine, peach, pear, pineapple, with right amount of acidity.       RP-89         CR-4          Good with seafood, salads, cheese. 

Peirano Estate Vineyards-The Other-Chardonnay-Sauvignon Blanc-Viognier-Lodi-California- 2007-$8.00-A good nose of spice and citrus, medium golden in color.  A pleasant drinking blend, citrus, spice and right amount of oak.  A great value with an interesting label.     NR       CR-3.5-4 Good with salads, pasta, chicken.
