Katie's Conclusion: Aromatics from the viognier fulfill the senses as white pepper, bacon fat and wild blackberry greet the nose upon decanting. The mouthfeel is structured with graphite that highlights the freshness. A round, earthy finish expands into savory blueberry. The acidity should reward aging through 2035.
