Nice wine, but I was hoping for some 'wow' factor.

Not a whole lot of fruit, a bit muted. Not a lot going on, but for the price, still a decent QPR.

Similar to last bottle. Decent wine... lousy QPR. I've had viogniers as good as this for less than half the price.

Slightly muted nose. Palate showed mostly red fruit, firm tannins, and a long finish. No green notes at all. Typical excellent Mike Smith wine!
