Iron Horse 1996 "T Bar T" Alexander Valley Fumé Blanc ($15.99)
Clear, pale straw color. Heady, floral aromas over fresh-cut grass. Although Viognier makes up only 20 percent of the blend, its signature aroma seems to dominate. Full, crisp and tart flavors, fresh fruit backed by a pleasant bitterness that lingers. Excellent wine, although pushing the limits for value in the Sauvignon/Fumé Blanc niche.
FOOD MATCH: Worked nicely with a cheese omelet stuffed with the first fresh asparagus shoots of the season.
