Added Mar 29, 2012 at 9:24amA very light and zingy style. Bright flavors, low on the floral aromatics. Refreshing. Would match well with summer fare such as pesto, radish salad and shellfish.

Added Mar 27, 2012 at 11:26amBright, tart flavors on the nose (green apple, lemon), getting warmer and riper on the palate into peach, very zingy finish!

Added Mar 27, 2012 at 11:24amVery toasty on the nose, ripe stone fruits, a bit buttery with a slight toasted marshmallow finish. Rich and viscous style, but it works.

Added Mar 27, 2012 at 11:18amFruity nose with lots going on in the palate! Classic stone fruits and honeydew melon, citrus zest and is that sesame I taste? A great sipper that would pair with sweet and tangy foods.

Added Mar 26, 2012 at 10:42amMy first Texas wine!! Vibrant fruit flavors - cantaloupe, ripe peach, slightly honeyed, faint bitterness in the finish, but not enough to get mad at. I say "giddy up!"

Added Mar 26, 2012 at 10:40amTypical floral characteristics (a parade float of colors here), but these are well integrated, balanced acidity, honeyed finish.

Added Mar 26, 2012 at 10:37amHappy to taste an American Viognier that doesn't strive too hard with the cheap floral elements. Integrated flavors, yellow and white peaches with a zippy, slightly sugary finish.
Mar 26, 2012 at 10:33am
Added Mar 26, 2012 at 10:33amNot too agressive for a New World style. Integrated floral aromas with some vanilla and apricot. Medium-bodied, slightly viscous. Rounds off with citrus zest in the finish.

Added Mar 26, 2012 at 10:30amI like this because it's not too big. The flavors are softened, but still well structured. Good acidity with lemon mingling with the peachy fruit, lilac aromas, pleasing bitter bite in the finish.

Added Mar 26, 2012 at 10:26amThe flavors are more "quiet" than other Viogniers. Good acidity toning down the fruit, which is more golden apple and less stone fruit, also less cheap perfume aromas, slightly toasty. Nicely done!
