Bright gold color. Apricot, almond, faint white peach and a hint of spice on the waxy nose. This is all about texture, not fruitiness. Opulent, waxy (think olive oil) almond and spice notes with a lime/tangerine acidity following through to the dry, palate-coating finish. Minerals and white peach linger. This wine is worth it just for the mouthfeel; incredibly suave and distinct. Not a flabby Viognier by any means.
McKinley Springs supplies 25 noted Washington wineries with grapes, including Andrew Rich, Northstar, Syncline, Hogue and Columbia Crest. Obviously they keep the best for themselves.
