2008

At this stage, this wine shows more like a Grand Cru white Burgundy than a 4-year-old Paso Rhone. Meyer lemon, salt water and botanicals are a mere introduction to the depths of its aromas. Bright citrus and tropical fruits are backed by light strokes of mint and bay. The finish is still fresh and suspenseful. 100% Viognier

2006

Exhibits aromas of candied lychee, pineapple and mango fruits, vanilla beans and perfumey jasmine notes. These elements all tie together in the wines rich, fruity, buttery mouthfeel.  The intense tropical fruit flavors persist in the finish with a subtle shadow of crème brulee peaking in during the lingering aftertaste.
