The Presidio Viognier has a nice golden color due to aging in natural French oak barrels for 10 months. The outer ring has a very nice clear yellow color to it.
The ‘Nose’ [which is a tasting term that describes the kinds of smells a wine has] include green apple and plum skins, Juniper berry, honeysuckle, bananas flambé, and toffee.
This wine has a light, gentle and extremely smooth mouth feel reminiscent of an oaky Chardonnay without the butteryness.
Flavors that come through are fresh apricot, prickly pear, and golden brown toasted marshmallow (not the burnt charcoal black – a nice golden brown).
