This blend of Viognier, Roussanne, Chardonnay and Marsanne starts with strong scents of toast, then hits the mouth with concentrated orange peel, orange candy and other tropical candy flavors. The mouthfeel is substantial, with evident tannins, and a soft, juicy finish. Definitely a drink-now wine, with some burn in the finish.
