This blend of 57% Chenin Blanc and 43% Viognier is opulent and forward. Rich scents of baked apple, clove-spiked orange, honeysuckle and hazelnut crisp dance on the nose and mouth, but the palate remains lifted with fresh acidity and a saline note. Accents of spice and toast remain through the long close. A gorgeous wine now, but it should age beautifully through 2015.
