M & D Phillips Incognito Viognier 2005
The Incognito Viognier wine was formerly known as Roussanne, which was awarded "Best Rhone in the World" as a Roussanne at the 2000 Los Angeles International Wine Competition. Incognito's grapes are grown in the Ripken Vineyard, east of the Carquinez Straits in the Sacramento River Delta region of California. Warm days and cool evenings - reminiscent of the clone's native Rhone Valley - produce the powerful and intense fruit with a sultry body that characterizes this wine, making it unlike any other Viognier. Pear and honeysuckle aromas open up into flavors of passion fruit, green apple and a lingering dried apricot finish with this wine.
Rising from the resurgent Lodi Appellation, Michael~David Winery produces some of the finest award-winning varietal wines in California. We are six generations of winegrowers specializing in hand-crafted Rhone varietals as well as Lodi's famous Old Vine Zinfandels. Our tasting room, café and farmer's fresh market are located just 30 minutes south of Sacramento and one hour east of the Bay Area. Enjoy!

A weighty wine with a rich fleshy mouth-feel. Flavors of apricot, pear and spice wrap up in a elegant, lengthy finish of tropical laced essence.
