but, sadly, some wines have nothing interesting to write about.

Welcome and interesting to read your notes on a late harvest Viognier.
I wonder if this is go to be a slightly new trend as Yalumba from South Australia has recently released a late harvest style, and so has Trinity Hill from Hawkes Bay in New Zealand - although in tiny, tiny quanitites at the moment. Do you know of any others?
With the late harvest V's starting to be produced, I wonder if it is a case of letting the grapes go, letting the sugars come up, letting the grapes stay on the vine and start to shrivel while concentrating those flavours. This might account for the lack of acid in your wine.

All we had in Red Deer, Alberta, was Jackson Triggs entry stuff. Nothing to get excited about!! The winestores sucked too!!

Jackson Triggs does have some nice wines but you know what conventions are like? At the banquet, there was one bartender for 250 people and a choice of one white or one red. Should have smuggled in the `02 Sparr Pinot Gris I had in my cooler in the trunk of the car!!
