Description

"...It has real Viognier character in its orange blossom, white peach, flowers, and honeysuckle aromas and flavors and is medium to full-bodied, nicely balanced, pure and layered on the palate. This beautiful wine will shine on the dinner table. Don't age it, drink it." ~ Jeb Dunnuck 

"I enjoyed the 2016 Viognier Rodney's Vineyard, a pretty wine with a classic bouquet of musky peach and rose petal, followed by a glossy, medium to full-bodied palate with nice freshness to balance out its texture and a flavorful finish." ~ Wine Advocate

"...a very pretty, understated wine. Gentle apricot, chamomile and floral notes are nicely woven together. The Viognier is done in a restrained, savory style that offers lovely depth while avoiding excess heaviness." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous
