Review: 2007 Viu Manent Secreto Viognier

This Chilean viognier (85 percent, the other 15 percent is mystery juice) is a lighter style than you usually find from California viogniers: Perfumy, with light peach and apricot notes. There’s a vague meatiness underlying the fruit flavor — which is more than a little strange in a wine like this — and the finish veers toward bitter. At just $14 (give or take), though, it’s an exceptional value that makes for a good party wine.
