    October 30, 2017 - You know when you're underwater with your eyes closed and don't know which way is up? That's the experience of sipping this amber gold wine. Ripe blood orange pungently on the nose, followed by golden apple, vanilla and brown baking spices. Taste and nose are harmonious, layering in a smooth buttery texture. Nicely balanced medium acid and a pop of white peppercorn (or depending on who you are, the light tartness of a kiwi core) on the finish. Great balanced wine and tremendous value.

    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.
