Cold Heaven Viognier le Bon Climat Santa Barbara County 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

93 points Josh Raynolds (International Wine Cellar): Pale gold. Sexy, highly perfumed aromas of nectarine, orange pith, candied ginger, bee pollen and flowers. Sappy citrus and dried pit fruit flavors stain the palate, with slow-mounting spiciness adding back-end cut. Lively but powerful viognier, with excellent clarity and floral-driven persistence. (Oct/Nov 2011)
