38% Viognier, 32% Grenache Blanc, 20% Picpoul Blanc, 10% Roussanne


Wine critic Owen Bargreen says: "This edition of the ‘Kissin’ Cousins’ includes 38% Viognier and 32% Grenache Blanc with smaller parts Picpoul and Roussanne. It is viscous and marvelously textured with bright underlying acidity and good weight. Kiwi, sweetened gooseberry and green melon flavors combine with copious minerals and salted nut undercurrents on the palate. Enjoy this complex white wine now and over the next seven years. Drink 2023-2030" 93 pts.

Wine Critic, Jeb Dunnuck says: "I always love the whites from winemaker Carl Bowker, and his 2022 Kissin' Cousins is based on 38% Viognier, 32% Grenache Blanc, 20% Picpoul Blanc, and 10% Roussanne. This perfumed, floral, pineapple, and honeyed peach-scented beauty is medium-bodied and has a round, layered mouthfeel, nicely integrated acidity, and a great finish. It's a gem of a white from Paso Robles to enjoy over the coming couple of years." 94 pts.

/ Case of 12

East meets west in this near 50/50 mix of Estate grown Viognier/Roussanne and Grenache Blanc/Picpoul Blanc from Two Hills vineyard in the El Pomar District. Aromas of pineapple, Asian pear, and freshly bloomed honeysuckle. The palate exhibits star fruit, semi-ripe mango, and wet stone with a lingering finish with traces of salinity throughout. Try it with an unconventional pairing of Chicken Satay or Pad Thai.
