Barrel fermented to dryness and then barrel aged on its lees, this sensual white wine is unusually aromatic and flavorful, with an exceptionally full middle palate. At the same time balance is accentuated and length increased by avoiding malolactic fermentation, providing focus and a refreshing finish. Consistently rated among the best in California, our Viognier joins our Zinfandels in defining varietal excellence.
This very concise Viognier is deep in blossomy, lightly honeyed fruit and conveys marvelous varietal confidence, but what most separates it from the pack is its uncommon sense of crafting and winemaking polish. It is full in body and uncannily light on its feet at one and the same time with terrific fruity energy and length, and, far more that most of its varietal mates, it is a cellar-worthy wine that, even though delicious and highly enjoyable now, is sure to age famously. 91 points - Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine
