2007 Abeja, Viognier, Walla Walla Valley, Washington, $28. Very aromatic, with honeysuckle abounding, this wine has very nice acidity for a Viognier. Generous and fruity in the mouth, with a bit of heat from the 14.5 percent alcohol; 88/88.
2007 Ã Maurice, Viognier, Columbia Valley, Washington, $25. Viognier does very well in Washington, and this is a prime example. Honeysuckle and peaches underscore the wine. Displaying excellent depth, this crisp, flavorful offering has an endless finish; 91/92.
2007 Dusted Valley, Viognier, Yakima, Washington, $30, 271 cases. Very floral and fruity on the nose and palate, honeysuckle and peaches predominating, with very nice acidity and depth; 90/90.
2006 Rulo, Viognier, Walla Walla Valley, Washington, $18. Pleasantly aromatic, this full, generous Viognier is quite flavorful, with tropical fruits abounding. Terrific value; 90/92.
