Picked this up during our visit there earlier this year. I don’t drink much Viognier, but this is textbook to me. White flower, honeysuckle, mint, and salinity on the nose. Great texture and a really nice flavor filled finish. Pink Cotton candy, peach, and nectarine. Summer in a glass. — 4 days ago
Bright lemon yellow with aoronounced nose of white peach, lemon and crushed stone. Lovely citrus (orange and lemon) on the Palate with honeyed peach notes. wonderful staying power- vibrant and persistent on a long finish. Tasted side by side with the 2013 and I felt this younger wine had a bit more elegance and power. — 2 days ago
Light gold; very floral, gorgeous, medium to full-bodied mouth tasting of orchard fruit (with skins); excellent acidity; surprisingly long finish. Very different from recently submitted La Doriane. — 10 days ago
Rideau Vineyard Los Olivos District Viognier 2016, California 91
Light golden in color with a yellow hue.
Strong and fruity nose with citrus, wood, white flowers, grapefruits, tropical fruits, light vanilla, minerals, white pepper and spices.
Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and nice legs. Crisp and refreshing.
Dry and fruity on the palate with lemons, citrus, pears, kiwi, spices, oak, grapefruits, vanilla, herbs, peppercorn and light vegetables.
Long finish with spices and a touch of banana bread at the very ending.
This is a nice surprise. A great Viognier from California. Well balanced and spicy, with nice complexity and a great mouthfeel.
Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up (20 minutes).
Good by itself or with food. I paired it with a very light brie cheese.
Has high alcohol and it's not noticeable at all, which really surprised me (in a good way).
Aged for 10 months in French oak barrels.
15.2% alcohol by volume.
$39. — a month ago
