Tasting Notes

An ideal vintage, 2014 was granted a mild winter, early bud break and consistently warm weather throughout harvest, yielding exceptional fruit quality on the vine.

The 2014 Signature Viognier is plush and vibrant, exhibiting an exotic and tropical flavor profile—guava, passion fruit and papaya blended with bright citrus and stone fruits. A tinge of acidity compliments the wines delicate creamy texture of crème brulee, and reveals hints of jasmine, orange blossom and clove.

Awards/Accolades

"This strikes the right balance between bold and graceful, with ripe apricot and mango flavors providing a fleshy texture, showing details of peach blossom and yellow apple, with refreshing acidity. Drink now."
