On the nose, aromas of honeysuckle and white peach hint at sweetness. However, this wine is dry on the palate with notes of ripe apricot, lemon-lime, melon and lychee.
Description

Details

JS 90 CG 90 Pts - According to James Suckling - Another Viognier with lots of dried fruits such as pineapple and apricot. Full and dense with a tangy acidity and dried fruit finish. Drink now. Zaca does it right.


According to the Connoisseurs' Guide - Winemaker Eric Mohseni's predilection for light, briskly balanced whites shows first in this wine's pert, white peach, quietly floral aromas and is reiterated fully in the bright, energetic, acid-crisped flavors that follow. While it never lacks for ripeness or for fullness on the palate, it is also alive and vital all the way to the finish. A year in bottle will add a bit of depth.

 

According to Wine Advocate - The 2009 Viognier exhibits what appears to be the vintage’s personality – loads of up-front fruit in an exuberant style. Consumers will love this style, which possesses peach, honeysuckle, apricot, and floral notes. It has zesty acidity, although not a lot of depth, but on a superficial level, it is a pleasant Viognier. Drink it over the next year.

 

According to Wine Enthusiast - This Viognier takes the variety’s exotic tropical fruit and orange flavors, combines them with minerals, and finishes off with a crisp bite of acidity. The result is a rich, elegant wine, with a hint of honeyed sweetness.

 

Tasting Notes - On the nose, aromas of honeysuckle and white peach hint at sweetness. However, this wine is dry on the palate with notes of ripe apricot, lemon-lime, melon and lychee. A lingering finish has a touch of minerality, a signature characteristic of our vineyard. A natural pairing would be Thai chicken, raw oysters, ahi tuna or Szechuan prawns. Rated 90+
