Freemark Abbey 2012 Viognier

Price: $32

Rating: 14/20

Region: Napa Valley, California

Varietal: 100 percent Viognier

Production: 1,503 cases

Alcohol: 15.1 percent


Tasting Notes: At the Judgment of Paris in 1976, California wines triumphed over French wines in a blind tasting. Freemark Abbey was the only California winery to have both a Cabernet Sauvignon and a Chardonnay selected to compete. The winery’s 2012 Viognier is a crisp, full-bodied wine. Its heady tropical fruit and floral aromas entice upon entry. Citrus and stone fruit flavors in the mouth culminate in a clean, dry finish.


Food Pairings: Spicy Asian noodle dishes and salads
