WTN: Novy RRV Viognier 2005....

Postby TomHill » Fri Jun 09, 2006 3:24 pm

Couldn't wait to crack into my Siduri/Novy shipment last night:
1. Novy RussianRvrVlly Viognier (15.2%; http://www.NovyFamilyWines.com) 2005: Med.light gold color; very strong clean/ripe/peach/pear/Viognier bit spicy/nutmeg nose; soft/fat/siliconey very ripe/peach/Viognier/pear bit alcoholic glycerined very lush fruit flavor; med.long lush very ripe/peach/Viognier finish; a classic example of DollyParton Viognier; great wine for $16.00
____________________________________________
A wee BP:
1. I liked this wine much better that last yr's version, which I thought rather over the top and pretty fumey/alcoholic. Though this is hardly a restrained Viognier, it's packed w/ lush/ripe Viognier aromas and flavors.

We had the '04 at a recent OL, and I was very, very impressed. I love Viognier, and this is up there for me among the CA Viogniers.
Cheers, Jim
