Tasting Notes by Winemaker Charles Smith

“A shimmering golden-green hue attracts the eye signaling great things to come. Meyer lemon, key lime and passion fruit step right up, supported by a supple texture suggesting richness without ever crossing the line. Layers to be discovered and a long, lingering finish to enjoy.”

Vintage Notes

The 2018 vintage was incredible! This outstanding vintage began mild followed by a long and dry ripening season in the fall. This enabled us to hang the fruit to reach optimal ripeness without losing acidity or increasing sugars. The wines from 2018 are exceptional in many ways, from the great expression of the whites to the beautiful refinement and complexity of the reds. Enjoy!

Current & Past Scores

94 Points – Jeb Dunnuck (v2017)

“All barrel fermented (10-15% new French oak) the 2017 Viognier Powerline is a Condrieu-like effort that has beautiful notes of musky pineapple, caramelized orange, and honeyed flower notes. Rich, medium to full-bodied, textured, and beautifully balanced, it’s a stunning Viognier to drink over the coming 2-3 years.”

92 Points – James Suckling (v2017)

“This is edgy and dynamic with sliced apples, lemons and honey. Medium to full body. Transparent, focused finish. Rocky. Creamy texture and tropical. Drink or hold.”
