2012 Darioush Signature Viognier * Napa Valley

Darioush Viognier beautifully expresses the eclectic and exotic character of this varietal. Grown in the cooler locales of the Oak Knoll appellation, with its dense early morning fog and afternoon breezes, enables this rare and finicky variety to ripen slowly yet completely, revealing layers of bright fruit, floral and tropical flavors which define fine Viognier.

Tasting Notes:

 

 

Bright and enchanting, 2012 Signature Viognier opens with a perfume of tropical flowers, ginger and freesia - evocative of a stroll through a Hawaiian flower market at the height of summer. Temptingly juicy, bright and rather unctuous, the flavors span Asian pear, apricot, white peach and a tingling note of kumquat lightens and refreshes the palate. A vintage that has it all intensity, layers of flavors and an impeccable seamlessness that lasts through the generously textured finish.
