Turnbull Viognier Napa Valley 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Nice pear fruit on the nose and surprisingly not terribly floral, showing nice subtlety to the pollen and honeysuckle nuances that accent the fruit along with hints of lychee and lime. Bright on entry, this is fairly rich in the mouth, with a hint of phenolic bitterness accenting the almond and light dried apricot fruit flavors. Texturally this is a bit aggressive for my palate, but it does finish with impressive length. 88 points

Floral, honeysuckle aromas with honey and tropical fruits. Nice acidity on the palate with pretty floral flavors, light herbal tones. Lychee, tropical exotic fruits. Guava and pineapple. Nice. 87 pts. 5/10/13 at winery
