Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This Clarksburg, California Viognier has very pretty floral aromatics and a palate with lots of tart apricot, lemon and slight floral notes. It's off-dry with great acidity and a long apricot finish. Enjoy with East Indian curries or delicate Vietnamese cuisine.
Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This medium-bodied Viognier is pale lemon-green in colour with slight viscosity detected on the glass. Over-ripe pear, apple, tropical fruit, honey,floral and toasted coconut aromas and flavours. The finish is rich aided by the characteristic oiliness of Viognier with a little green noted at the tail end. Perfect for weightier white meats such as pork tenderloin or veal yet rich enough for seafoods in butter sauces. This one ticks a lot of boxes! Serve slightly chilled.
Tasted: August 2015
Produced by , Don Sebastiani & Sons, this Californian white is made from Viognier grapes. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
