Lots of aromatic fruit intensity. Definitely in the tropical style with bits of florality and spice. Full-bodied and rich, but I thought the acid was there in support. Perhaps not as layered as great Condrieu but better than most NW Viognier I have had.

Shockingly deep yellow in the glass; it looks like a thick syrupy sweet wine but the nose is lifted by soft floral notes intermixed with honeydew melon. The oak influence is obvious but not overpowering. A pronounced white pepper finish only added to the pleasure though this one did seem to lack acidity. (Northof9finewine, April 2011)
