The 2016 Cailloux Vineyard Viognier is truly one of the most compelling white wines made in Washington. Sourced from the esteemed Cailloux Vineyard, this Viognier starts with an incredible aromatic display of honeysuckle, lychee, white flowers and brandy soaked pear. The texture is silky, and beautifully coats the palate. I absolutely adore the viscosity this displays, as it is beautifully balanced as it reaches the attack. This continues to impress as it shows wonderful mid-palate richness, along with a stony character and nice salinity. Banana, lychee, and ripe pear flavors follow and complete this fantastic bottling. This is drinking incredibally well now, but will also offer plenty of enjoyment over the next few years.
