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.
