2015 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 and Los Carneros appellations, dense early morning fog and afternoon breezes enables this rare and finicky variety to ripen slowly yet completely, revealing the layers of bright floral and stone fruit flavors that define fine Viognier.

Tasting notes

The lower yielding 2015 vintage coaxed intensified flavors from this naturally aromatic variety. Harvested in multiple passes through the vineyard to ensure optimal ripeness, 2015 Signature Viognier reveals remarkable density and purity of fruit.

Opened by ethereal aromas of jasmine, freesia and sweet pea; Signature Viognier delicately reveals citrus and stone fruits– orange blossom, kumquat and juicy white nectarine cascade on the palate and are anchored by crisp Asian pear and subtle minerality. A refreshing and gratifying finish of lemon curd, clove and vanilla bean complement Signature Viognier’s lean and graceful frame.
