"Coming from a single vineyard at the top of Red Mountain, the 2018 Viognier WeatherEye Vineyard High Canyon Block reminds me of a Viognier from John Alban with its great bouquet of white peach, pineapple, and crushed citrus. These all carry to a medium-bodied white that has a layered, pure texture, plenty of fruit, good overall freshness, and a great finish. Drink it on release and over the following couple of years."

"Unquestionably, one of the most exciting new projects in Washington State is that of Liminal, which focuses on the newly planted WeatherEye Vineyard located at the very top of Red Mountain. A collaboration between Ryan Johnson and Cam Myhrvold, who managed the vineyard, and Marty Taucher and Chris Peterson who handle the winemaking, this is a star-studded team. As I hope the reviews show, these are awesome wines, which is even more impressive given that this is brand new vineyard. I’ve no doubt the best is still to come as well!"
