Wine Review: This pale straw colored Viognier from Napa opens with a faint peach, gentle lemon and pretty floral bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely acidic and its fruit flavors arrive out upon entry. The flavor profile is a peach and gentle apricot blend with nicely integrated minerality and a hint of pineapple. The finish is dry, clean and its flavors drift away nicely. This wine was one of our top finishers in our Big Blind Tasting. The panel felt it would pair well with broiled scallops or garlic steamed mussels. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Brilliant greenish straw color introduces the vibrant aroma and flavors of Viognier. Volatiles such as mandarin orange, peach blossom, honey-suckle, guava and pink grapefruit dominate the aroma. The flavor is punctuated with mandarin orange, peach, honey, banana and guava… very pleasant and full with great viscosity and balance. The Freemark Abbey Viognier is a very refreshing wine that yields both complexity and a pleasurable lingering experience.
