Winemaker Notes

On the nose, this Viognier from Saralee's Vineyard has a delicate perfume of honeysuckle, orange blossom, and even a hint of orange sherbet with vanilla ice cream. On the palate, the full-bodied flavors are incredibly concentrated and luscious with creamy vanilla, dried apricots and subtle notes of spice in the background. There is a silky, viscous texture in the mouth and a lingering finish complemented by a touch of vanilla.

Chef's Suggestions: Our Viognier will compliment poultry or seafood seasoned with tarragon, basil, fennel or even Cajun spices. It makes a delicious addition to most Thai dishes, and is wonderful with a simple, seared pepper crusted tuna steak.

Alcohol: 14.5%

Arrowood Vineyards & Winery, California
Arrowood Vineyards & Winery Arrowood Well Farmed  Winery Video

Arrowood is 100% Sonoma. Since 1986, the winery has been producing high-character wines from sustainably and organically farmed vineyards west of the Mayacamas Ridge. The winery is located in the historic Sonoma Valley, a small sub-appellation in the heart of the county. This rolling AVA is particularly well-suited to Cabernet Sauvignon, Arrowood's signature wine.

Home to a diverse array of smaller AVAs with varied microclimates and soil types, Sonoma County has something for every wine lover. Physically twice as large as Napa Valley, the region only produces about half the amount of wine but boasts both tremendous quality and variety. With its laid-back atmosphere and down-to-earth attitude, the wineries of Sonoma are appreciated by wine tourists for their friendliness and approachability. The entire county intends to become a 100% sustainable winegrowing region by 2019.

Sonoma County wines are produced with carefully selected grape varieties to reflect the best attributes of their sites—Dry Creek Valley’s consistent sunshine is ideal for Zinfandel, while the warm Alexander Valley is responsible for rich, voluptuous red wines like Cabernet Sauvignon. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are important throughout the county, most notably in the cooler AVAs of Russian River, Sonoma Coast and Carneros. Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Syrah have also found a firm footing here.

Full-figured and charmingly floral, Viognier is one of the most important white grapes of the northern Rhône where it is used both to produce single varietal wines and as an important blending grape. Look for great New World examples from California, Oregon, Washington and cooler parts of Australia. Somm Secret—Viognier plays a surprisingly important role in the red wines of Côte Rôtie in the northern Rhône. About 5% Viognier is typically co-fermented with the Syrah in order to stabilize the color, and as an added benefit, add a subtle perfume.
