2012 Viognier, 'Catie's Corner', Russian River Magnum
Vineyard Notes: Sustainably farmed, cool climate site, river cobbles and Goldridge loam soils. A solid 2012 vintage sustained with perfectly cool evenings and warm days. Harvested the grapes September 26th.
Winemaker’s Tasting Notes: Barrel fermented in neutral French oak. Golden yellow in color. Floral, high-toned notes of Meyer lemon, apricot, lime blossom, honeysuckle, and spicy orange liquor. Background notes of gardenia and Creamsicle. Big mouthful of apricot, key lime pie, pear, and spicy orange marmalade with a long, lingering finish.
