90 points "The 2009 Viognier is very fresh, with loads of honeyed peach and apricot as well as some exotic lychee and floral notes. The wine has good acidity and medium to full body, with more minerality than most California Viogniers."

90 points "The 2011 Viognier Central Coast is bright and focused from start to finish. White flowers, lychee and peaches are some of the notes that emerge from this pretty, nuanced wine. Readers looking for a textbook Central Coast Viognier will find much to admire. The Central Coast Viognier bottling is a relatively new offering made from 50% purchased fruit. It occupies an entry-level niche, and offers fabulous quality for the money." Best -2015

92 points "More fresh and agile than the '13, the 2014 Viognier Estate (tasted out of barrel) has classy peach, citrus and mineral notes to go with a full-bodied, rich, yet pure and even elegant style on the palate. I love its purity and it will no doubt continue to pick up richness and depth in barrel. (92-94)."
