Cayuse Vineyards 2004 Viognier

    Tasting notes: An exotic confection of lemon-lime, ripe, ginger-spiced pear, and vanilla bean, this unusually sophisticated viognier embraces and enlivens the palate. Worth knowing: While on a trip to Washington State in 1996, Frenchman Christophe Baron purchased a property with lean, rocky soil that reminded him of the soils in some of his native land’s premier appellations. He purchased the land and called it, appropriately, Cayuse Vineyards after a Native American tribe whose name is a bowdlerization of the French cailloux (stones).
