" Specializing in Rhône varieties, Alban Vineyards is an artisan winery with a long term objective of increasing the awareness and quality of Viognier in California. Many wineries have jumped on the Viognier bandwagon in the last five to ten years, but few with as much success as Alban. In the 2002 Central Coast edition, the nose reveals slightly sweet scents of honey, white peach, and clover. But on the palate, the wine is blissfully dry. Excellent balance, lightly crisp throughout, and a very long finish. A superb introduction to this sometimes finicky varietal and delicious with goat cheese salad."
