86pointsTreana 1997 Mer Soleil Vineyard White (Central Coast)

A blend of Viognier (60%) and Marsanne (40%), you can tell this largely barrel-fermented wine was made with good fruit, but oh my, the oak. Vague floral, peach and citrusy notes are all that escape the cloak of vanilla. If winemaker Austin Hope would tone down the oak a notch, we'd rate this wine several points higher.
