jones-viognierBest Buy! Phenom winemaker Victor Palencia scores with this crazy-good Viognier. Sweet lime, orange and mineral aromatics lead off this crisp, dry white. On the palate, it displays more citrus, with lime, orange and a touch of tangerine. It closes with a nice hit of acid typical Jones and its white wines from the Wahluke Slope.
