2018 K Art Den Hoed Viognier - 1.5L


Honeysuckle, Asian pear, lilac and wisteria. This seductive wine is elegant and layered with white peach, apricot, melon, apple blossom and cool stone. Mouth-filling and fresh. A sophisticated beauty. -Charles

Current & Past Scores

92 Points, Jeb Dunnuck (formerly of Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate)

“From a site in the Yakima Valley and brought up in neutral barrel and concrete, the 2018 Viognier Art Den Hoed reveals a medium gold hue as well as beautiful notes of orange blossom, ripe peach, and a touch of quince. With medium-bodied richness, the classic Viognier texture, and a great finish, it’s a layered, textured, balanced Viognier that does everything right.”

92 Points, Vinous / Stephen Tanzer (v2015)

“[...] The juicy dark berry, spice and licorice flavors lead to a classically dry, palate-staining finish featuring broad, dusty, mouth-saturating tannins. The crop level here was reportedly barely two tons per acre. In a manifestly Old World style, and more Languedoc than Châteauneuf du Pape in its restraint.”

The vineyards we work with are farmed using the most up to date sustainable practices.

Art Den Hoed (100%): Made entirely from Art Den Hoed’s vineyard in lower Yakima Valley, this site is unique because it sits at 1300 ft in elevation, making it one of the cooler vineyards in the area with excellent air drainage. We source from two blocks of Viognier, the older planted in 2000 and the newest planted in 2006.
