Natalie's Score: 90/100

Gorgeous! Intense and aromatic with orange zest and honeysuckle aromas on the nose. Lemon dry and mouth-watering on the palate. Medium- to full-bodied. Intense and lovely. Great for Asian fare.

Viognier food pairings: grilled shrimp, lobster.

Andrew Bernardo Wine Journal rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

In warm vintages, this wine is all about unctuous tropical fruit, and has a massive potassium/banana note. 2011 is different. A wet and cold July was followed by a warmer fall, but allowed for more hang-time for the fruit. The result? The classic tropical fruit is there, ripe stone fruit, dark agave, but with a more lively acidity than the 2009 and the 2010. This is a classic for scallops with rich sauces. I'm 88+ on this wine.

Very forthright aromas of apricot, honey, herbs, and grapefruit. The palate is medium-bodied and equally unabashed with expressive honey, herbal and fruit notes and a crisp acidity. Rich, ripe and balanced, this is a very nice Viognier. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, June 2012
