San Simeon

Estate Reserve Paso Robles Viognier 2019

Color of light gold. Nose of tropical sweetness, nice spice and green apple, a bit mineral, and strength of alcohol. Taste is quite light, dominated by green apple, tinkling zest, some tea note, and warmth from the alcohol. Aftertaste is spicy warmth from the alcohol. On par. — 10 days ago

Growing on men with each sip tbh. The (pleasing) salinity overwhelms the fruit for me in the end, though — 9 days ago

Santa Ynez Valley Estate Vineyard Viognier 2016

Had this for Mother’s Day brunch. Earthy, floral, dry but still a ton of zip. Goes great with or without food. I need 10 of these bottles on me at all time. Great price point. — 3 days ago

A departure from the fleshy 2018, this is focused and lean with a substantial mid-palate. Depth of flavor, new world Condrieu. — 24 days ago

Nose is like a blend of Condrieu and sea salt. Very intriguing. Apricot pit. Floral and mineral but I get a sense it’s holding back. Now some terroir notes are coming through. Nose is nuanced and complex but right now is showing maybe 10% of itself. Has that earthy funky dirty Burgundian thing. Palate is epic. Juicy, structured, deep and very complex. Super dry on the finish. Really lingers as well. Also showing only 10% of what it could be. Very delineated on the finish and superbly mineral. Not much fruit to speak of as of yet. Acidity is good and there is lovely balance and it definitely floats on your palate. Good concentration and depth. Needs time. Maybe 1.5 hours and I will check in again.

Ok nose is a bit better now. Huge spice. Very floral. Like an elite condrieu but much earthier and reminiscent of white burgundy. Gorgeous citrus. Really needs a bit of air here. Sugar cane. Palate is now gaining finesse and has no hard edges. Gorgeous structure and finesse. Really massive 1er cru/grand cru elite white burg structure. Long finish. Amazing how young this shows. Awesome finish. 9.4 to 9.6.
