External Reviews for Cass Viognier
One of Paso Robles most energetic newer wineries, Cass Vineyard and Winery has everything going for it: a spacious tasting room, ample outdoor seating, a café that serves special dishes to complement the wines and, not least important, a very decent wine selection. The scenery is also quite fetching, and if you are equinely inclined, you may take a tour of the estate vineyards on horseback: preferably before you’ve tasted through the lineup at the tasting bar. Not to be missed is this Viognier, a fine example of a warm climate edition of this varietal. In the glass, it’s bright and light, very pretty and displays none of the telltale golden hues that bespeak a flabby overripe blob. Thankfully, it was fermented and aged entirely in stainless: Viognier needs no wood. The aromas are peachy, floral and inviting: the flavors run from nectarines and apricots to ripe pears, with pineapple and tropical notes on the finish. An ideal summertime wine for sipping out under a massive oak tree while toasting the warm, but not hot, summer sun.
Wine Recommendation: Cass 2006 Viognier Tasting Notes: This Estate Viognier was fermented and stored in stainless steel in order to allow the natural apricot and pear flavors to come out. We hand picked at first light in order to get the grapes as cold as possible into the winery. Lood pressed the juice off the skins right way, leaving the juice at 48 degrees, perfect for minimizing bacterial growth, but not so cold as to inhibit the robust start of fermentation.
