High Marks from the German, Perfect 10


The German (the husband) does not use the term “swanky German engineering” generously. In fact, he doesn’t use it at all…exactly. However, he does contend that Woodhouse Cellar’s Hudson Shah 2007 Viognier from the Columbia Valley of Washington state is the best viognier ever. He said “BEST EVER!” And we don’t use absolutes lightly. This wine opens with a collision of butterscotch, crispy melon and raw coconut. Fresh and lightly sweet, it blossoms into a swirl of toasted almond and lemon. A little cream cuts the acid creating a perfect balance with the precision of a German Riesling. It finishes strong, long and steely; rugged enough to hold it’s own, yet so soft that you just want to whisper into its tiny, undiscerning ear. Goodnight Sweet Pea.

Drank at: Woodhouse Family Cellars, $37
