Overview of the Wine
Alban Vineyards is the first America winery and vineyard established exclusively for Rhone varieties. Conceived at a time when there were virtually only two "flavors" of wine produced in the U.S., they set out to introduce wine grapes that would offer oenephiles a new world of possibilities. Pioneering Roussanne, Grenache Noir and Viognier to go along with meticulously selected clones of Syrah, Alban Vineyards has guided consumers and producers to the enormous potential of Rhone varietals in California.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Alban Central Coast Viognier showcases the forward heady stone fruit of this variety. It is fermented and aged entirely in stainless steel and bottled early.

93 Points - Jeb Dunnuck
This estate makes one of the top Viogniers out there, and the 2022 Viognier Central Coast is a great entry point for readers looking to see what all the fuss is about. While it's released under the Central Coast appellation, it’s all estate fruit from Edna Valley and has a beautiful, medium to full-bodied style as well as textbook aromatics of citrus oil, white flowers, ginger, and minty herbs. Brought up mostly in stainless steel (10% in barrels), it has beautiful acidity, terrific balance, and a great finish.

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
I tasted the 2022 Viognier Central Coast on July 8, not long after it was bottled on May 23. It has slowly unfolding scents of white peaches, honey, almonds and desiccated jasmine. The light-bodied palate features restrained, mineral-driven flavors and bright acidity that creates a shimmery sensation. A touch of textural bite on the long finish will allow it to pair with a wide range of cuisines from fresh vegetables to spicy dishes.
