Wine Review: This pale straw-colored Viognier from Mt. Harlan opens with a rose petal and mango bouquet with a hint of honeysuckle. On the palate, this wine is light plus bodied with integrated medium acidity. The mouthfeel is nicely balanced, smooth, and bright. The flavor profile is a delicious mango and white peach blend with notes of chalky minerality and honey. I also detected a hint of ginger tea. The finish is slightly off dry and its flavors drift away nicely. This very flavorful Viognier is pleasant and very easy to drink on its own. With food, I would pair it with a macaroon cookie! Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Crafted from our prized estate Viognier grown at soaring elevations reaching 2,200 feet, this radiant wine invites a first sip with tantalizing aromas of white peach, apricot, lemon and honeysuckle. The pure citrus and stone fruit layers are echoed on the supple, mouthcoating palate, where they are framed by refreshing acidity that drives the wine to a poised, energetic finish.
