2010 Brian Carter Cellars Oriana Columbia Valley Washington $20

46% Viognier, 37% Roussanne, 17% Riesling

Rather focused on the nose with plenty of apple and orange fruit, some tree bark and mineral notes with a lightly orange blossom/lilac floral edge to it. In the mouth, this is fairly tense and firm with a lovely bed of minerality under layers of delicate, succulent apple, peach and citron fruit. Very lively with a nice sappy feel that picks up some peach as it transitions through to the moderately long finish, showing a really lovely interplay between mineral and very fresh fruit. I’m really digging this. Finishes with a zesty spiciness. Very lively stuff. 91pts
