Description

Roussanne is a delicate, late-ripening grape that, with a little care and patience, makes a beautifully aromatic and full-bodied wine. Our 2020 Roussanne is a golden straw color in the glass with delicate aromas of honeysuckle, lemon and Mandarin orange accented by pie crust, starfruit and vanilla. Flavors of citrus, honey and graham cracker harmonize with hints of vanilla and orange zest.

Roussanne can be paired with a variety of foods - try it with roast chicken, pâté, pork, cream sauces and even some moderately spicy dishes. 

Wine Critic Reviews
"...offers tons of varietal character in a style that balances the natural oiliness of Roussanne with notable freshness and vibrancy. Tangerine oil, mint, lemon confit, chamomile and pretty floral top notes all come together effortlessly. There's terrific energy here. Aging in puncheon helps retain a good bit of drive." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous " Broad beach and melon aromas are lifted by pillowy yellow flowers and a springtime freshness on the nose of this bottling. The palate grips with a firm tension, presenting a citrus edge to the richer white-flower and nectarine flavors." ~ Wine Enthusiast "...has terrific purity in its orchard and pear fruits as well as spicy, buttery nuances. It's textured, medium-bodied, and balanced." ~ Jeb Dunnuck
