Russian River Valley Viognier, 2019

Produced by McKahn Family Cellars

Lush notes of banana cream pie, candied orange peel, spring flowers, apricot and peach, and a very subtle hint of honeydew melon. There is so much going on here that it will make you do a double take, finding something new with each sniff. This is a full bodied wine with moderately firm acidity, and a finish that you won’t soon forget.
