Description

“The 2014 Viognier (Santa Barbara County) is made in a fresh, slightly reductive style that emphasizes freshness rather than the richer, more oily style that is often found in Viognier. Sweet floral and orchard fruit notes are nicely delineated throughout.” ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous

"Salted stonefruit, Key-lime pie and eggy brioche notes show on the nose of this entry-level Viognier from the longtime producer. The palate offers lime blossoms, white peach, slight quinine and a touch of caramel in the midpalate, presented with a grippy texture." ~ Wine Enthusiast

"Detailed lemon, apple and pear flavors show appealing juicy acidity and a whiff of apple blossom on the finish. Drink now." ~ Wine Spectator
