The color is a pale gold. The nose offers classic viognier aromas of tropical fruits and citrus blossoms. Tropical fruits lead on the palate. Meyer lemon and mango lead, with banana and coconut in the background. The finish falls off a bit quickly, but this is a pleasant quaff, and will brighten up a bucket of spicy fried chicken. Recommended. 87 points. DBH
