This is a heavily oaked brew of 50% Viognier, 40% Chardonnay and 10% Riesling. The nose is woody to the max, with herbal notes of parsley and white flowers. A full, heavy, resiny palate is home to barrel-driven flavors of spice and clouded white fruits. On the finish, this tastes mostly of wood and resin.
