Qupe Roussanne Santa Maria Valley Bien Nacido Hillside Estate 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

92 points Josh Raynolds (International Wine Cellar): (13% alcohol; all used oak): Pale yellow. Heady orchard and pit fruit scents are complemented by notes of chamomile, sweet butter, honey and lemon curd. Rich, lively and precise, offering bitter pear skin and nectarine flavors that are lifted and sharpened by juicy acidity and a hint of ginger. Silky and seamless on the long, focused finish, which leaves dusty mineral and citrus pith notes behind. This bottling has a great track record for aging. (Dec 2014)
