I did not include Cono Sur Viognier in my Holiday shopping guides because Iâ€™d already mentioned it several times throughout the year. But with a new vintage on the shelves I feel itâ€™s time to remind everyone of this wonder wine.
While the newly arrived 2014 is as amazingly good as all the previous ones, it is young and therefore Viognierâ€™s flower-power is subdued. Which is not a bad thing. The main experience is delicious refreshment â€“ think Pinot Grigio with a suntan â€“ and in a pretty dress! The perfect anytime/everyday $9.95 wine. Cono Surâ€™s winemaking is as deserving of awards as the la-te-da stuff.
