Wine Review: This pale straw-colored Viognier from Washington State opens with a delicate apricot bouquet with a hint of mango. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and nicely coats your mouth. The flavor profile is a mild mineral infused almond and lemon verbena blend with a touch of lychee. The finish is dry and drifts away nicely. This classy and elegant Viognier will pair nicely with many foods. I would choose Coquille St. Jacques. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: We grow a very small amount of Viognier on our Red Mountain vineyard. Some of the Viognier is used for co-fermentation with Syrah and the rest is crafted into our estate Viognier, which is pressed and fermented in concrete and neutral French oak barrels. It is a full, rich and expressive wine without being oily or flabby, and retains beautifully balanced acidity with bright freshness and length. Aromatics of citrus, lychee, white flowers and spice are typical for this wine. Only members of the mailing list have access to the estate Viognier, as it is so limited in production that there is not enough to distribute.
