    June 18, 2016 - Aromas of apricot and peach which carry on to the palate with floral and mineral notes. Moderate finish that could use more acidity.

    November 28, 2015 - One of the hits of the night, this fruit forward, peach and pear dominant Viognier was ready to drink. With a little air it opened and was quickly consumed by guests.

    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.
