Rather clear and precise on the nose, with lemon, treacle, and honeycomb fruit topped with sweet, almost violet floral aromas and a mango top note. Creamy orange and lemon flavors and aromas pop on entry, followed by a nice hint of creamy honey and lightly spicy floral notes with an edge of peach on the back end that leads to a clean, clear and vibrant peach and Meyer lemon finish. This has a lovely texture with just a hint of richness draped over vibrant green plummy fruit. 88 points

Very pale—almost watery looking—yellow color. Bright refreshing tropical fruit nose. Lots of fruit on entry—green apple, citrus, table grapes, pineapple, melon. No indication of RS on the label, but I have to believe there is, at least, 1%, or so. Very tart makes this a very refreshing, although not terribly sophisticated, summer wine.

Wonderful nose of pear, lemon, citrus, melon and honeysuckle. This has been a favorite for hot sunny days on the deck for several years now. Juicy, tart finish blends with the right amount acidity and with a touch of small bubbles gives an uplifting aftertaste. Drink now - Paul 89 points

I love this unpretentious wine. Floral accents, stone fruits, a touch of sugar and a slight effervescence lead to a framed acidic finish. Well done year after year. 89 points - drink now - Paul

Floral and fresh on the nose. Light fruit and a touch sweet with good acidity. Finish was short and slightly bitter.

Crisp, tart, melon, tangerine and bubble gum-like aromas jump from the glass of this 2013 Chenin Blanc/Viognier (80% and 20% respectively). Aged totally in stainless steel, it no doubt has much of its malolactic fermentation blocked given its crisp acid profile. There are 130,000 cases of this perfumed, delicious white. Drink now.

Aromas of lemon, juicy honeydew melon and sweet mango, complemented by soft orange blossom notes; the palate is crisp and mouthwatering with juicy fruit flavors lingering through the clean and lively finish.

This extraordinary blend enchants the nose with a refreshing bouquet of succulent fruit and delicate florals, opening with juicy honeydew melon, sweet white peach, and ripe green plum touched with hints of spiced white tea and soft apple blossom. The vivacious palate leads with crisp yellow grapefruit, fresh-cut pineapple and sumptuous honeyed pear notes. Lush and lively fruit flavors linger through the clean and slightly off-dry finish.

Pine Ridge Vineyards in the Stags Leap District of Napa Valley has been growing Chenin Blanc since they started out. It’s always been a good wine for them with nice acidity and citrus flavors but they discovered that when they blend in Viognier it takes on a whole new dimension. Now the wine is wildly popular and gets rave reviews every vintage. The blend is 80% Chenin Blanc and 20% Viognier. It shows bright tropical fruit flavors like mango and pineapple along with tangy citrus that's bright and lively. This 2013 earned a Gold Medal in the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. The 2012 scored 90 points from the Wine Advocate for the fourth consecutive year!

Floral and sweet on the nose, the 2007 Chenin Blanc-Viognier exhibits fragrant aromas of pear, lychee and melon, with a delicate touch of grapefruit, lime and mixed citrus. Sweet, bright flavors of lively citrus and pear are offered up along with a supple texture. The slightly off-dry finish is clean and crisp, marked with notes of red grapefruit. 80% Chenin Blanc and 20% Viognier
