Calera

Stone fruit, jasmine and slate waft from this gorgeous 2010 Mt. Harlan Viognier. Silky and smooth, it boasts beautiful, bright, layered flavors of Asian pear and gooseberry with a soft tartness and creamy, pear accented finish.

Wine Advocate

The 2010 Viognier Mt. Harlan, from estate-grown fruit, takes things to another level. Mint, white flowers, pears and peaches are some of the notes that emerge from this transparent, weightless wine. There is plenty of richness but no heaviness whatsoever in the glass. A beautifully chiseled finish rounds things out nicely. The Viognier Mt. Harlan was whole-cluster pressed and aged in French oak barrels with no rackings until it was prepared for bottling. This is a fabulous showing from Calera. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018.

Score: 91. —Antonio Galloni, August 2011.
