Lark Hill Mr. V Marsanne Roussanne Viognier 2013
This is, curiously, not there either. It kicks off with a broad, open knit nose without any element sticking out. A fraction neutral really given how open it seems, the barest hint of peach the only varietal touch. Ditto the palate which looks a little reductive, slightly alcoholic and surprisingly lacking in varietal definition. Was expecting a little more varietal stamp here, and save for a little waxy pear and a whisper of apricot, there is none. Even after a few days in the fridge.
Drinkable, but not quite there.
