2004 Darioush Signature Viognier * Napa Valley

True to the varietal, our 2004 Signature Viognier possesses abundant floral aromatics of orange blossom, honeysuckle and fresh apricots. Rich and concentrated flavors of ripe white peaches and Anjou pears are complemented by hints of toasted walnuts and creamy vanilla bean. We enjoy this wine upon release when its bright fruit and aromas are most vibrant.
