Wine Review: This light yellow colored Roussanne opens with a honey and pear like bouquet with a hint of apple. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, ripe and shows some sweetness. The flavor profile is a honeyed pear with notes of apple and apricot. The finish is semi-dry and its flavors linger for quite a while. I would pair this wine with chicken florentine. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Roussanne is a challenging grape in both the vineyard and winery. However, when done correctly it can produce an aromatic and delicate wine with the structure and finesse to age. In the end, the wines of 2010 have intense aromas and flavors, beautiful balance, and high acidity. Our Roussanne is rich, floral aromas of pineapple, honeysuckle, and fresh apricot; highlighted with brioche, and vanilla. The mouth has a creamy texture, layered with flavors of nectarine, melon, and Meyer lemon. Firm acidity provides a lengthy finish of citrus, mineral, and spice.
