Double Platinum

2018 Reserve Viognier, Applegate Valley

“Cal Schmidt’s project not far from historic Jacksonville, Ore., is an honest family effort that goes beyond his daughter/grandson winemaking team and into his vineyard, their restaurant and tasting room. There’s attractive hedonism with this 100% barrel-fermented Viognier that’s far from over-oaked. Emblematic notes of orange Creamsicle and crushed banana give this enticing perfuminess and delicious weight, which achieves balance with ample acidity and a dash of white pepper to finish. (188 cases, 15.7% alc.) Award: Denver International Wine Competition (best of show). San Francisco Chronicle (Best of Class)
