A perfect way to turn someone onto the viognier grape: Delicious bright banana and mango, unctuous texture. Bright and happy. A great summer afternoon wine.

I am not a huge white wine fan...but LOVE this Viognier. We first had a tasting at the Miner Family Vineyard in Napa...I liked it so much we went home with multiple bottles AND joined their wine club. My husband makes a delish cajun shrimp dish we like to pair with this Viognier. YUM!

I am a French Viognier fan - typically much more so than California versions. I had a sommelier in Las Vegas who agreed with me on this but convinced me to try this wine as they didn't have any French Viogniers by the glass. I was exceptionally pleased. It is very much in the French style. Not too citrusy. Smooth and soft on the palate. Just the right amount of floral and spice. Love, love, love it!!! One of my absolute favorites

Creamy soft viognier. Sour grapefruit with short finish. A little disappointing but have found recent vintages of viognier from California.

Pretty bouquet, but also quite hot. Flabby in the mouth and lacking a pleasant aftertaste.

This wine smells extremely sweet, but is smooth and very close to a chardonnay. The light golden color is gorgeous in a carved crystal glass and the wine works very well with roasted pork tenderloin. The taste is crisp, but not overpowering. It finishes smooth and the taste tapers off to a light aftertaste that is extremely mellow. Though this is a white wine, the taste of fresh barrels comes through and all of the fruit. There are peach notes and a hint of plum. Similar to a chardonnay, but has a taste all of its own.

These grapes are grown in a little known area not typically thought of as a primary source of fine wine grapes. But, the proof is in the bottle! These low-yielding vines produce grapes of unusual concentration, purity of flavor and electrifying vibrancy. The wings of the Miner label serve as an homage to family, heritage and place. Founder Dave Miner’s grandfather arrived in this country from Persia in 1914. His ancestry, tracing back numerous generations, leads to the people, culture and heritage of ancient Assyria. The Miner Family wine label is based on an ancient Assyrian relief in the image of a Winged Sun God. This symbol represents the brilliant light of the sun, which illuminates the life of mankind while providing energy and warmth to the grapevines. It also represents abundance and prosperity and brought life and health to the vines of the family’s distant ancestors. It is the hope that Miner Family Vineyards and those who enjoy their wines, will prosper with this good fortune for many years to come.
