Gregory Graham Wines2007 Viognier, Bartolucci Vineyard
Greg Graham, the longtime winemaker for Napa Valley’s Rombauer, has left and taken up fulltime residence in Lake County where he made this wine. No new oak was used here, thankfully, and the result is a rich, viscous effort with gorgeous fruit and acidity.
