Viognier is in its element in the Paso Robles climate and a classic warm summer added to the stress of the ongoing drought; it produced a heady, viscous, perfumed wine with a mouth coating glycerol component and a blossomed fruit orchard aromatic. The addition of Picpoul Blanc introduces a contrasting pineapple-citrus acidity and a salivating vibrancy. This wine has a multi-dimensional quality with a “phantom” sense of sweetness and a tingling, palate cleansing finish. Night picked grapes were whole cluster pressed, fermented and aged on the lees for 10 months in 100% stainless steel. Best enjoyed in the near term 2014-2015.
