Vina Robles 2007 Paso Robles Viognier Huerhuero

Medium straw color, hints of green and orange. Traces of petillance.

Smells of peach and freshly-squeezed orange.

Peach/apricot tastes, petillance on the tongue, ends with subdued oak and alcohol warmth, a bit of cleansing bitterness. Fairly thick mouth-feel.

Interesting bottle for $26.99. I'm a little non-plussed by oak in a Viognier, but I recognize that they all shouldn't be Condrieu clones, I think it's fair for New World vintners to essay their own styles.
