Joseph Phelps – Viognier 2013 – Saint Helena – Napa Valley

The nose is powerful and fruity. It reveals notes of fruit, quince paste and slight notes of apricot and almond paste combined with a few slight notes of coconut. The palate is fruity, mineral, fat, suave and offers a small acid frame and a nice matter. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of pear and nectarine associated with touches of watermelon, touches of exotic fruits as well as a touch of quénette, slight notes of oak, brioche and a slight hint of coconut in the background. Good length.
