10 Nov 2009 2008 Eberle Mill Road Vineyard, Viognier, Paso Robles

Appearance:  medium bright, lemon-green core transitioning to a water-white rim

Nose: clean, medium intensity aromas of mineral, sea shell, dried apricot

Palate: medium+ intensity flavors of pear, dried apricot, mineral and lemon pith; low tannins; high alcohol (hot on the finish); medium+ acidity (angular on the palate); medium+ concentration.

Quality: The wine is average to good; the wine is slightly out of balance due to the alcohol and angular acidity.  The flavors are typical for central coast viognier without being over oily in texture.  The wine is best served chilled.
