Tasting Notes by Winemaker Charles Smith

“With an impression of richness, without being rich. Orange blossom, lemon zest, honey suckle abound in a focused aroma and palate that continues to deliver with layered complexity and sheer unadulterated pleasure!”

Vintage Notes

The 2019 vintage was on the cooler side as it started slow with later-than-usual bud break and continued on to be fairly moderate throughout the year. Some vineyards had issues with an October freeze a bit earlier than usual, but our high-elevation vineyards have great air drainage which allows us to extend the growing season late into October without freeze. This yielded fantastic ripening and some awesome wines with incredible balance and character. Overall, we are excited about the wine produced in 2019, which has brought us more finesse, incredible flavors and lovely balance.

Current & Past Scores

90 Points – Vinous/Tanzer

“Bright straw-yellow. Tangy scents of yellow peach, spices and spring flowers, accented by pungent chalky minerality. Juicy and intense but quite laid-back and dry, with stone fruit and underripe pineapple flavors currently dominating. Showing the fruity side of the variety in the early going but has good mineral support as well. This midweight Viognier possesses good energy and finishes with subtle savory persistence.”

93 Points – James Suckling (v2018)

“This is a serious viognier with density and richness that is reminiscent of a southern Rhone with it’s depth and layers. Full-bodied with a solid center palate and a long, flavorful finish. I like the almost tannic structure to the mouth feel. Drink or hold.”
