Recognition

Mid-90 points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate over the past several vintages, including this one.

Tasting Notes

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.

The Story

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 with the owner, tasted the wine, and confirmed the provenance, then made a deal that we could all be happy with.
