Top 100 Wines of 2012
San Francisco Chronicle
"2011 Holly's Hill El Dorado Viognier ($20, 13.7%): The Cooper family's gorgeous hillside plantings outside Placerville is a sweet spot for Rhone-native whites. Flourishy and floral, with sachet, ginger, beeswax and mandarin orange — and the foothills' mineral tension. A great example of a cool vintage aiding a grape that needs to be perfected on the edge of ripeness."
