Donelan White Rhone Blend Bennett Valley Venus 2008
Real nice grapefruit and other pale fruit flavors. Started out very cold and flavor developed from sharp and tangy to full and creamy as the temp warmed up. Fabulous bottle of Roussanne. Very well balanced. Paired perfectly with Shrimp Scampi Orzo.Add winemaker's notes
Leave the pretense at the door. Small warehouse winery intermingled with a few other brands, a custom crush facility and a wine storage business. Just putting out stellar wines year after year starting out as PAX and now evolving with a new winemaker into Donelan Family wines. Very personable staff and a hands on owner in Joe Donelan who spends much of his time calling customers on the phone to thank them for drinking his wines.
