    January 28, 2016 - Rich and unctous with tropical fruits and touch of oak on the finish

    May 22, 2015 - This wine is more complex than most viogniers. The floral nose is subdued and flavors of tropical and stone fruits prevail. The fruit flavors are soon joined and supplanted by mineral and graphite which lead into a prolonged refreshing finish.

    March 28, 2015 - Popped and poured. This is a medium gold wine with visible flecks of matter. The nose carries wax and a nice flower meadow. The mouth is crisp and bright, leaving a marshmallow-like finish. This is certainly still kicking and enjoyable. 91 points.

    February 24, 2015 - Heavy handed style Rhone ranger white. I enjoyed the wine for what it is but it misses a bit in the refinement department. Much better as a cocktail wine than with food. Good Viognier aromatics, lingering finish and full bodied on the palate. Superior to the majority of California Viogniers. Taste dry to me, the sweetness of other California Viogniers try to trick you into thinking they are better than they are, this one does not need it.
