At the Baranek Family Vineyard there are only sixteen rows of well-cared for grapes that are planted in Clarksburg, a sleepy town located in the Sacramento Delta area. Sunny and hot in the summer with cool, breeze filled nights, it is an ideal location for growing Viognier.
A very aromatic nose full of tropical fruit, predominantly lychee fruit, jasmine petals, and light honeysuckle. Stirring the lees two times a week over a five month period produced a full-bodied, viscous mouth-feel. Notes of white peach and nectarine on the mid-palate, followed by a long, pleasing aftertaste. A perfect accompaniment with dried fruit, cheese, fruit salads, and wild game, especially quail!
