Ken's Wine Rating: Very Good (88)

Review date: March 30, 2010

Wine Review: This light yellow colored Roussanne from Truchard is Very Good. It opens with a mild apricot bouquet with hints of tangerine and pineapple. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and shows some lively acidity. The flavor profile is a blend of apricot and lime. The finish is very dry. I enjoyed this wine and thought it would pair well with linguine with a clear clam sauce. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Rich aromas of green apple, honeydew melon, and lychee fruit; highlighted with pineapple and vanilla. The mouth has sublte flavors of nectarine, peach and fresh pear. Bright acidity provides a crisp finish of citrus, mineral, and spice.

Organic status: not organic
