Pale yellow-gold. Musky citrus oil, quinine, ginger and spearmint complicated by minerals on the nose. A bit more exotic on the palate but dry and taut as well, with complex flavors of stone fruits, minerals, licorice and lichee enlivened by notes of quinine and ginger. Very dry and smooth, with sneaky length. The wine's 14.9% alcohol is apparent in its richness but this extremely satisfying Old World-style viognier does not come across as hot. This was Sean Thackrey's first white wine (2010); he added La Pleiade to his line-up with the 2012 vintage.
