Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is 50% viognier, mainly from Bien Nacido but with a few barrels of Ibarra-Young blended in, and 50% chardonnay all from Bien Nacido. As always, this wine is a blend of ultra ripe viognier which allows an intense aromatic character develop, and chardonnay picked at the low end of ripeness which adds acidity, freshness, balance and structure.
