Somedays, I just grow weary of the oaky flavors that permeate California white wines and look to other regions to provide a respite. Although Lodi is sometimes viewed as the Bastard Stepchild of the Sonoma-Napa relationship, the region produced a real winner in this 2016 Viognier from the Peirano Estate Heritage Collection. While the peach and honey flavors are noticeable on the tongue, this Viognier finishes with mineral tones rather than oak typical of California chardonnays, sauvignon blancs, and the like. I have savored this vintage by itself but have also paired it successfully with lobster cakes. Pleasing on the palate either way…
