Winemaker's Notes

The 2006 Treana White displays the elegant varietal characteristics of Viognier and Marsanne; vibrant floral aromas of honeysuckle, citrus blossom and jasmine are followed by ripe stone fruit flavors with hints of pear, pineapple, and citrus and honey overtones.

Solid minerality lends complexity and structure. The mouthfeel is full, while bright acidity cleans the palate and offers ease and versatility to food-pairing. A wine of excellent balance and complexity, the 2006 Treana White will age beautifully over the next decade.

"There's fantastic depth and richness to the apricot, peach and almond flavors. Intense as syrup, but with a good acidity that keeps it light on its feet. The richness persists on the finish. Viognier and Marsanne. Drink now."
-Wine Spectator

"Treana has enjoyed great success with this blend of Viognier and Marsanne, which is one of the best Rhone-style white wines in California. The main reason is the source of the grapes. The '06 is as rich and crisply acidic as ever, with fantastically complex, honeyed tropical fruit, apricot and floral flavors that taste like they have a touch of botrytis."
-Wine Enthusiast
