Brennan Vineyards Viognier 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This smells figgy and a bit feral on the nose with some over-ripe mango notes and a touch of buttery caramel. Very soft on entry, this has a caramel edge to the fruit which follows through with the fig promise of the nose. There are gentle floral notes, but this is mostly a dense, figgy wine with soft hints of honeysuckle in the mouth and a very nice spicy finish. Once again a wine whose finish shows the full potential of the wine. While this doesn’t finish with any profundity, it does have good length and presents flavors more in the classic peach and honeysuckle vein. 85pts

If you want a sweeter, heavier Viognier, this is your friend!

My 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!"

Floral with apple and citrus notes. Round and smooth mouth feel.

A Southern France grape with a Texas twist. Aroma with a strong citrus and grass nose. Taste of citrus, lemon, and peaches with a waxy mouth feel which really adds to the wine. Completely un-oaked.
