rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The Drink Wine and Giggle Gals must fess up. Until we started writing wine reviews and expanding our viniferous horizons we would march right past Fess Parker at the liquor store, confusing him with Festus, the scruffy fellow who would hang out with Miss Kitty at the Gunsmoke Saloon. We thought perhaps the Fess Parker winery made moonshine. But Fess Parker wasn't Festus, he was Daniel Boone and Davy Crockett, two men the Drink Wine and Giggle Gals would love to go imitation duck hunting with. Viognier is a similarly confusing wine with ancient and unknown origins that is unpredictable and "incredibly challenging". Fess Parker got it right, however. His viognier is a beautiful taste of the wild frontier.
In the 1950s and 1960s, Fess Parker was hugely famous for playing Davy Crockett and Daniel Boone on television. He turned his earnings from those shows and others into this highly successful winery. Tremendous honeyed richness in this Viognier, yet as sweet as it tastes, it finishes dry, a magical trick only a great wine can accomplish. Shows all the exotic tropical fruit, wildflower and spice flavors you could ask for in a California Viognier, and never loses its vitality. Special Designation: Editors’ Choice.
