"The 2009 Viognier Mill Road Vineyard shows good varietal character in its round, sensual fruit. Light tropical, floral notes wrap around the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2013. " (WA)

"The most successful Eberle Viognier in years from a vineyard that has excelled in the past, this handsomely crafted bottling leads with youthfully juicy, outgoing aromas of white peaches and rich honey and ripe pear scents all backed up by an underlying streak of minerality for support and added range. Supple and full-bodied on the palate and deeply cast in its succulent, luscious flavors of peach and tangelo, this wine has it all in an open, inviting, easy to quaff style. Reviewed: May 2011" (CG)

"This rich, ripe Viognier offers upfront citrus and tropical fruit flavors that combine with vanilla honey to finish off-dry to sweet. Brisk acidity helps to provide balance." (WE)

"Tight pear and quinine flavors keep this Viognier’s rose perfume in check. It has some edge to it, to match simple grilled fish or something sweeter, like Thai prawns with pineapple." (W&S)

Winery Notes:
The 2009 Viognier perfumes the nose with aromas of honeysuckle, citrus blossoms and apricots. Its vibrant flavors of ripe pears, peaches, almonds and spice add to the lush mid-palate of this exceptional wine.
