Light straw in color, this Viognier offers aromas of white peach, jasmine, lychee nut, vanilla and a hint of cinnamon. Enjoy flavors of honeysuckle, honeydew melon and white nectarine combined with peach and vanilla on the palate.
Blend: 80% Viognier, 13% Marsanne, 5% Grenache Blanc, 2% Roussanne
"The 2009 Viognier is one of the more generous whites in this lineup. White peaches, mint and vanilla emerge from this rich white. An element of slight heaviness is the only thing that keeps the score from going higher. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2015."
The Wine Advocate
"Yellow apple, lime peel and ripe pear flavors lead the way in this direct, focused, wonderfully spicy and duly fragrant wine. This features floral details and generous acidity."
"ivid yellow. Pungent aromas of pear nectar, nectarine, baking spices and smoky lees, with a suave floral quality in the background. Juicy, penetrating pit and orchard fruit flavors are brightened by a zesty citrus quality and show no rough edges. Suave and highly floral, finishing with good clarity and mineral-driven persistence."
