The vines were 14 years of age in 2012. It reveals that steely, wet pebbly, gravelly character that adds a complex nuance to the honeysuckle, peach and apricot fruit. This floral, medium-bodied, steely beauty can be enjoyed over the next 3-4 years. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

World-class Viognier, of which this bottling is a good example, has both depth and beauty. It transcends the grape's inherently peachy, floral simplicity and takes on complex notes of roasted nuts and hardwoods while still maintaining a lighter hand to its fruit than Chardonnay. This wine is no shrinking violet, yet it is polished, deep, balanced, supple and rich all at the same time. Its length is exemplary and its potential to improve for two to five years move it to the very head of the class and earn it a central place in our cellars.
