Intense nose with baked cherries, notes of cedar, toasted marshmallow, and jasmine tea. The chewiness and power is nicely balanced by lively acidity. Plenty of spice and fine tannins drive the long finish.
The 2021 Viognier strikes a lovely balance between delicate and opulent. The perfumey nose has strong varietal character with notes of honeysuckle, apricot, lemon curd, and french vanilla. The pronounced acidity perfectly balances the creamy, slightly oily texture of this richer bodied wine.
The nose is bursting with layered aromas of cassis, blackberry and black tea, with a subtle spice note from the beautifully integrated French Oak. Across the palate, it is dense and mouth-coating, with supple, suede-like tannins. The moderate alcohol and healthy acidity keep the profile very vibrant and balanced. That juicy cassis flavor carries all the way through the impressive finish.
