This is an intriguing Viognier. Much of California Viognier comes off as alcoholic or hot and certainly lacks the floral lightness of many of the Rhone counterparts. This bottle strikes a middle round which is quite nice. Light golden in color. The nose has lots of grapefruit with a bit of a floral quality (white flowers?). Medium bodied. On the palate, this has a grapefruit juice quality but a bit livelier that say a Sauvignon Blanc. Not really showing any age at the moment, still, I would drink this sooner than later to enjoy the freshness. It will go well with all but the heaviest of foods as it has some real body.
