    June 1, 2013 - Still drinking well....likely not many more years left in it, but certainly enjoyable.

    August 10, 2010 - Sampled 8/9/10. This wine took a full hour to open. Some very nice apricot and tropical fruits in an understated and classy style. Not particularly sweet, but not too dry either. A very well balanced wine that stil lhas couple very good years left in it.

    November 14, 2009 - Fight Night Wines V (matt's, highland park IL): nose: rich and big nose of oils, white fruits, peaches, and bits of peach blossoms. Good depth, but almost too rich on the nose

    taste: full bodied with big tones of oils, peaches, tropical citrus', and tones of white fruits. There is some noticeable heat that bites on the back end

    overall: The heat is a bit much. This is also very big for a viognier and its hard to gauge it. If this got chilled down a bit, the heat may not be as noticeable

    December 1, 2008 - Drank w/ dad on Thanksgiving on his request (surprised that he requested a white wine)...Let this breathe for an hour or 2 and come to nearly room temp...This is still one of the best domestic viogniers on the market! Delicious.
