This wine is a lot better than its "country wine" appellation would imply, and was a terrific buy during a sale at North Berkeley. It's a blend of 60% Viognier and 40% Roussanne. Very attractive and forward nose displays candied peaches, citrus, butter, flowers, melon and a whisp of boubon whiskey. Rich, satisfying flavors with a medium-bodied feel. Well balanced, excellent, serious summertime white. - HK 2003-08-02
