Even though we had a busy schedule, we decided to carve out some time and enjoy a glass of Virginia wine for Virginia Wine Week. We went to Grapeseed in Bethesda, MD. It wasn’t Virginia but they serve Virginia wine by the glass.
Our before dinner sipper was the 2009 Viognier from Horton Vineyards. Horton’s viognier is one of our favorites and the 2009 didn’t disappoint. Right away we noticed the floral aromatics. We picked up subtle peach and a hint of lemon, like a twist of lemon. In the mouth we got very similar qualities with the addition of tropical fruit flavors. It had a nice, creamy mouthfeel. We’re sure the Horton Viognier will be one of our favorites for a long time. We hope you were able to enjoy a glass of Virginia wine this week. What did you enjoy?
