Zaca Mesa
2006 Late Harvest Viognier

On the nose, this Santa Ynez Valley wine offers aromas of honeysuckle and white peach, hinting at sweetness. However, the wine is dry on the palate with notes of ripe apricot, lemon-lime, melon and litchi. A lingering finish has a touch of minerality, a signature characteristic of the Zaca Mesa vineyard. A natural pairing would be Thai chicken, ahi or Szechuan prawns.

Rating: 13/20
Price: $20 (375 ml)


A good bottle of vino has the ability to balance and highlight your beef's flavor profile, elevating taste sensations to an entirely new level.

Fall has beer written all over it. Cool nights call for toasty flavored beers in colors matching the changing leaves.
