Wine Review: Some day Viognier will break thru to the other side and become much more popular than it is today. This is an example of a wine that could help that cause. This wine is very floral on the nose. On the palate, the wine is quite lively and tasty. This is a nice food pairing wine. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Incognito's grapes are grown in the Ripken Vineyard, east of the Carquinez Straits in the Sacramento River Delta region of California. Warm days and cool evenings - reminiscent of the clone's native Rhone Valley - produce the powerful and intense fruit with a sultry body that characterizes this wine, making it unlike any other Viognier.

Organic status: not organic

"Wine to me is passion. It’s family and friends. It’s warmth of heart and generosity of spirit. Wine is art. It’s culture. It’s the essence of civilization and the art of living."
