This is intense on the nose with notes of mango fruit, lanolin, flinty notes, white pepper and a bit of diesel, along with some very ripe/overripe apricot fruit. This is just as intense in the mouth and very ripe with mango and apricot fruit dripping all over the palate. This is a bit soft and certainly mouth-filling, but the flavors of overripe fruit are going to be the undoing of this wine. Perhaps it is just in a tough period today, but it’s not appealing to my palate. 78pts

Sweet with some apple. A little bland.

Crisp rich citrus fruit on the nose. Intense but fresh fruit in the mouth. Has a depth and complexity that could be mistaken for Rhone.

International Wine Cellar ReviewRated 89Pale yellow. Fresh melon, peach and pear aromas are brightened by minerals and quinine; not your typical dried-fruit roussanne bouquet. Fleshy melon and pit fruit flavors are gently supported by fresh acid and mineral notes. Fleshes out on the finish, which features a ripe honeydew quality and very good cling. This easy-to-drink wine would be great with spicy foods. But I would never have guessed roussanne.
