Perfect Viognier! Floral and lime blossom notes lead followed by a zippy lime zest. Medium-bodied and thoroughly delicious. Get out of your white wine rut with this one. I love when wine gets better the more you try it. Wonderfully seductive aromas of peach and pink grapefruit on the finish. Yes please! Finishes with aromas of white peach and floral notes. Pretty!
Viognier food pairings: chicken, cloved ham, lobster, sushi, grilled seafood, pork.

|Rebecca Meir-Liebman - Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
From a very well known winery that rarely disappoints, this is wine is no exception! Stag's Leap is one of the oldest wineries in Napa – they’ve been making wines since 1893 – and has a great appreciation of and respect for the Viognier grape. This is a richly textured wine, with some attractive buttery and poached peach notes on the nose. On the palate it's full-bodied with apricot and peaches on the mid-palate, and a sharp, acidic finish. Enjoy some pleasant complexity as the flavours evolve from buttery richness to peachy fruitiness, and finally lime. Pair it well with richer rosy fish – salmon or trout – Cornish hen or even a mildly spicy steak tartar.
|Stags' Leap Winery was established in 1893. This Viognier is a testament to the fact that the know how to handle Rhone varietals like Viognier. Beautiful lime blossom and floral notes on the medium-bodied, dry Viognier with lime zest, ripe stonefruit, pink grapefruit and cake spice flavours, smooth and zesty on the palate -- a delicious 'drink now' Viognier. - Community Wine Reviews|
