Joseph Phelps – Viognier 2014 – Napa Valley

The nose is fruity, elegant, aromatic and offers a certain vivacity. It reveals notes of lemon, white flowers, honeysuckle and touches of vine peach associated with fine touches of exotic fruits, apricot as well as fine wood notes. The palate is fruity, gourmand, elegant, well-structured, fat and offers finesse, a good expression and an acid frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of tropical fruit, lemon and fine touches of clementine associated with hints of white fruit compote, small notes of minerality, peach as well as slight touches of vanilla oak (in the background). Good length and persistence.
