Mid-90points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate over the past several vintages, including this one.
The wine's aromas have a focused depth: stone fruits, pear, honeysuckle and minerals. Flavors of nectarine and lemon continue through a deep and pronounced finish.
This very limited wine comes from an allocation-list only winery who limits the Viognier to only their most loyal members. However, they do reserve a case or two for their restaurant clientele...
Here we are in 2020, with restaurants being closed for months.Suddenly, this rare wine had no place to go. We made a connection withthe owner, tasted the wine, and confirmed the provenance, then made a deal that we could all be happy with.
