    June 12, 2008 - Peach, toasted marshmallow, clove and flowers on a medium- to full-bodied palate. Great balance, with fresh, bright acidity. More restrained than Alban's estate Viognier from the same vineyard.

    December 1, 2006 - ok but not particularly my style...not as rich with a stronger acid backbone

    November 11, 2006 - Initially sweet, hot and grapey, but turned the corner to reveal real depth of fruit and flavor, as well as a delicate burnt edge on the nose and finish. Would benefit form a decant. 50+4+11+16+8=89
