Cold Heaven Viognier 2006

External Review by CoolVines:

Referring to his belief that viognier is best expressed in cool climates, Morgan Clendenen has experimented with different grape clones in each of the microclimates of his Santa Barbara vineyards until finding the best match. We think he's on to something!.
