87pointsAbacela 2004 Viognier (Oregon)

This new vintage brings down the alcohol (from 15% to just under 14%) and the price of this pleasant, well-made Viognier. Citrus and apricot fill out the fruity midpalate, and it's a round, peachy wine without any of the bitterness or heat that can plague overripe Viognier. The aromatics are clean and simple; though it does not have the extra dimensions that the best Washington Viogniers can sometimes express, it does not suffer from the flaws the Washington Viogniers can sometimes express.
