Darioush Viognier beautifully expresses the eclectic and exotic character of this varietal. Grown in the cooler locales of the Oak Knoll appellation, with its dense early morning fog and afternoon breezes, enables this rare and finicky variety to ripen slowly yet completely, revealing layers of bright fruit, floral and tropical flavors which define fine Viognier.
An ideal vintage, 2016 was granted a mild winter, early bud break and consistently warm weather throughout harvest, yielding exceptional fruit quality on the vine.
The 2016 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.
"Juicy and succulent, with plenty of pop to the tangerine, apricot and Asian pear flavors. Smooth and seamless, packing in plenty of intensity without any weight. Finishes charming, showing a lovely note of honeysuckle." Wine Spectator 90 Points
