Viognier. 2012. This shouldn’t be possible. The 2012 Two Shepherds Viognier is waking up! Still showing bright acid and a lovely oily viscosity that you would expect from Viognier. Balanced & lively.

I try to come up with an accurate descriptor of what I taste. This time I leave the description to my son. He says it is like a visit to the Botanical Garden. Exotic. Clearly he inherited my wife’s palate.

Grapefruit, quince, white tea, and a twist of Meyer lemon. William Allen, keep ‘em coming!

Lean and mean in the Viognier world, aromatic and crisp. Love it!

Consistent with my May '15 notes, but I will add quince to the flavor profile!

Beautiful, floral, aromatics. Crispy (acidity). Under notes of vanilla, just a hint. There's a juicy melon note that I can't quite put my finger on. Seductive. Wish there was more.

This is a terrific take on Viognier. Absolutely delicious! Balance of body, flavors, acidity, and finish. Don't expect the usual aromas found in a Viognier, but do expect finesse.

Low aromatics, but still lovely. #rhonerangers
