This is cool climate viognier, meaning that it's leaner/crisper/drier and a little less baroque than many grown in warmer climates. If you had the previous vintage, I'd say the '22 is slightly less nervy, a little longer on the palate and shows a little more Rhone-like gravitas than the '21.
Vinography 8.5.23, 9/10 score -- "Light yellow-gold in the glass, this wine smells of lemon oil, white peaches, and bee pollen. In the mouth, wonderfully bright and zippy flavors of lemon scented white peach and pink grapefruit dance on the palate. Quite delicious, and still one of my favorite renditions of this grape in California."
