    October 13, 2013 - Wonderful bottle of wine. Nose of honey, pineapple and crisp pears. Very full on palate but not overly sweet. Tart finish with loads of fruit in between.

    September 30, 2013 - Great fruit, not too fruity though, and definitely not as sweet as many viogniers out there. Very smooth. My last 2010, and I'll miss it.

    May 25, 2013 - Love this wine. Needs to be very cold and gets better with a little time open. Perfectly balanced.

    December 31, 2012 - Fresh floral notes combined with sweet fruit--peach, melon on the nose.
    On the palate-- initially sitting heavy in a luxurious suspension of time --with continuation of peach and the addition of mango and clementines on a base of almond oil, which in a relaxed manner segues into a crisp citrus finish

    September 15, 2012 - One of many at the Pana Weatherford Extravaganza. First wine of the night. Nice, full bodied, viognier, drinking more like a chardonnay. Popped and poured to a very lemony and floral scent in the glass with a hint of honeydew and melon. On the palate was lemon, pie crust, and zest with an acidic front. Minerality was significant at first, but that blew off as the wine opened. Overall it stayed a very likeable, subdued, full bodied viognier that had some carbonation all throughout. Was enjoyed with some manchego cheese, brie, and crackers. Excellent array of flavors here. Nice wine - good drinker. Not too sure of the QPR. Drink now.
