There is a very credible case to be made that Lismore owner and winemaker (and Californian) is one of the most talented winemakers in the world. Taste any vintage of her superb Syrah, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, or Viognier and you'll see why. Very few winemakers turn out this kind of quality across such a range of grape varieties.
Samantha actually makes two different Viognier bottlings. There is the reserve, which sees a larger percentage of new wood (and is quite good). Then there is this: The Age of Grace.
Like any great Viognier, this is floral with hints of honeysuckle and orange blossom on the nose, and notes of kiwi and lychee on the palate. But what I think sets this wine apart from just about every other Viognier is its subtlety and finesse. This is refined and, as the name suggests, quite graceful.
Viognier, particularly of this quality, can accompany any number of more complex dishes. I can't imagine a better white to serve to guests at a dinner party.
100% Viognier. Serve cool to cold.
