Has nice richness, with bold aromas and flavors of peach, anise and star fruit. Shows textbook varietal character, with a fresh, lingering finish. Drink now. 150 cases imported. -JM Bright yellow. Peach, honey and spices on the attractively high-toned nose. Supple and rich, with a slight sweetness to the peach flavor. Not complex but offers serious texture and breadth, not to mention sheer flavor intensity. The alcohol is slightly elevated but this big viognier holds its shape nicely on the finish, which offers a sexy suggestion of marzipan.
