Wine Review: This pale straw colored Viognier from Calera is terrific. It opens with a mild ginger and faint tangerine like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied and very nicely balanced between is fruit flavors and gentle acidity. The flavor profile is a delicious mild mineral infused white peach and tangerine blend with notes of gentle lime and honey along with faint oak and a hint almond. The finish is dry and its flavors linger and last for a really long time. This Viognier is one of the best that I have tried in a while. Buy a bottle or two and share with friends. It's a terrific introduction to the grape. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: 2013 Mt Harlan Viognier possesses a unique bouquet of pear, honeysuckle, dried apricot and musky green mango. The palate is alluring yet restrained with flavors of tangerine marmalade, Meyer lemon and mineral. Its silky, mouthwatering, lush texture persists into a delicious juicy finish.
