***WINE FUTURE BOTTLING FIRST WEEK FEBRUARY***
Those of you who have been with me over the last couple of decades know my general disdain for overripe, waxy California Viognier. Of course, things have gotten better as producers have dialed in their vineyard locations and, over the years, I have warmed to the varietal here, especially in Santa Barbara County and Santa Ynez Valley, California's home of the Rhone.
Today's offer comes from the same source as Lot 372 Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir, one of California's Rhone varietal pioneers.
Normally priced at $28/bottle out of the winery ($20-$25 in the trade), this delicious, mouthwatering, laser-focused Viognier can be had today for just $9+/bottle when you buy a 6-pack!
Only 250 cases available so get it before its gone!
Gorgeous bouquet of apricot, peach, beeswax and honeysuckle wrapped around a crushed granite underpinning that provides freshness and aromatic lift. Warm and silky on entry, this wine wraps itself around your tongue with nectarine, apricot and beeswax notes that unwind beautifully with chalky acidity providing excellent balance and tension to the richness. Sexy, vibrant and energetic this "Spring in a Bottle" Viognier is sure to please a broad swath of white wine lovers!
100% Single-Block, Estate Vineyard Santa Ynez Valley 14% alc. 250 cases available Bottling first week of February, 2023, and shipping shortly thereafter.
