2012 Forgeron Cellars “Ambiance” White Wine, Columbia Valley ($25)

"This is a South Rhone style blend of 38% Viognier, 23% Roussanne, 23% Marsanne & 16% Grenache Blanc. It shows a brilliant gold color & an attractive nose of pear, peach, papaya, orange peel, honeysuckle, & star anise. The fruit compote flavors are bright & juicy, with a creamy texture counterpointing the citrus undertones. The back picks up minerals, melon rind & grape skin on the way to a lightly spiced (nutmeg, clove) elegantly lingering finish. 18.5/20 points."
