From: Yakima Valley, Washington, USA
Tasting Notes: If not Washington's finest Viognier, then damn close. Meyer lemon, orange blossom, and buttered bread carry through on a lengthy finish. Carries excellent balance and varietal character.
“Fruit for this wine comes from two of the state's top sites. The aromas are bright, with notes of cantaloupe, pear, graphite, lemon curd and white peach. A full bodied, rich, exquisitely balanced palate follows, delivering a mouthful of flavor.” –Sean P. Sullivan, Wine Enthusiast, 91 points

Pairing: Viognier can be a tricky wine to match up, but the richness of the wine works well with richer proteins - think roast chicken, turkey (use this for your Thanksgiving dinner!) or poached salmon. The spice in the wine also works wonders with Indian food. We're sharing an easy recipe to make, by Sam Sifton for Turkey à la King, so you can relax in comfort and enjoy the evening with an old classic.
About. The 2021 viognier is sourced from two distinct sites in the Yakima Valley AVA: Red Willow vineyard on the far western edge of the AVA and Olsen vineyard on the far eastern edge, close to Red Mountain. The cooler climate and exceptional site at Red Willow produce wines that offer fantastic floral notes and citrus flavors. The warmer climate and south-facing slopes at Olsen produce wines with ripe melon and tropical fruit characteristics. This wine spent six months aging in 59% stainless steel, 23% used French oak, 11% new French oak, and 7% concrete egg.
