M & D Phillips Incognito Viognier 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

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.Intense tropical aromas of honeysuckle, nectarine and peach. 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.
