The wine is brilliantly clear with a darker than normal appearance. The nose carries everything you would expect from a Viognier with notes of Jasmine, white peach, floral tones, and turning a bit more tropical with aeration. This wine has great acidity and that is immediately evident upon entry into the mouth. There is good length and richness, without being oily or flabby and the finish is long and lengthy. The initial flavors are of yellow fruits [apricot, pineapple, yellow melon] but there is a citrus or stone fruit character underneath. A wine that will offer some immediate enjoyment but has enough structure and complexity to warrant a few years in the bottle.
