Description

“The 2015 Marcella's, Fess Parker's white Rhône blend, is gorgeous. Soft, open-knit and expressive, the 2015 offers striking depth, nuance and freshness. Apricot, mint, chamomile and lightly floral notes are laced into the finish. This is another delicious, flavorful yet mid-weight white from Fess Parker. The Marcella's is done in a combination of roughly equal parts steel and oak.” ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous

"Based on grenache blanc and viognier, this is a lush white, its scents of flint and lemon oil giving way to a warmer spiced-tangerine flavor that finishes zingy and clean, its freshness outlasting any waxiness. A summer aperitif." ~ Wine & Spirits 

"Crisp lemon meringue, peach and apricot flavors are fleshy and juicy, with spice and floral details on the finish." ~ Wine Spectator
