Winemaker's Notes

(From 2012 Vintage) The 2012 Viognier Central Coast jumps from the glass with exotic apricot, peach and white flower notes. There is lovely immediacy in the fruit in this up-front, juicy wine.

    Wonderfully rich and varietally expressive in its outgoing aromas, this opulent and mouthfilling wine absolutely bursts with fruit, and its near-decadent display of sweet peaches, mandarins and apricots is enriched with notes of vanilla and cream. It is thick and slightly oily in feel yet shows remarkably fine balance from beginning to nicely vital finish, and its ongoing richness, in the face of evident heat signals the need to save it for service with appropriately full-flavored foods.
