Roshambo Roussanne Lake County Marry Me 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Do you (insert your name here), take this Roussanne to be your lawfully wedded wine? Do you promise to cherish and behold this pretty portrait of pralines, sweet honey and marzipan? Will you always appreciate the Easter lilies and wildflower that bloom in each bottle? And will you forever treat yourself to such sweet indulgences ‘till death do you part? (Answer, "I do.")

Roshambo Winery:
Roshambo Winery was born of the simple idea that serious wines became, well, a little too serious. It's the brainchild of maverick Wine Hero Naomi Brilliant, granddaughter of the late and great Sonoma County grape grower, Frank Johnson.

Roshambo Winery was born of the simple idea that serious wines became, well, a little too serious. It's the brainchild of maverick Wine Hero Naomi Brilliant, granddaughter of the late and great Sonoma County grape grower, Frank Johnson. Our small, independent winery was named after the West Coast slang for the ancient children's game, "Rock, Paper, Scissors," and with our annual RPS Tournaments, Pirate Proms and Roshambustops, we like to think we are fighting for fun in a winey world. Buut... it's important to note that while we take pride in our storied history of creative branding, we know that it's what's inside the bottle that really counts. We have to appeal to your palates and senses as much as your spirit. Because no matter how slickly we package the stuff, we know we can't pull the wool over the oenophile's eyes... nor can we lure the beer and booze set to the Other Side of the Vine with a bogey in the bottle. The whole point of this adventure was to welcome a new crowd of people to the party - Gen-Xers , Boomers, Millenials and Unidentifiables alike - by providing a disarmingly fun context in which to encounter serious wine. Our offerings have been fortunate enough to catch critical praise - most recently, in Wine Enthusiast's March '08 Buying Guide (FJV Syrah: 93 Points, Reverend Zinfandel: 92 Points, "Rock" Rhone Blend: 90 Points). Though... we don't think you should buy a wine just because so and so says so. Read less

I had never tried a Roussanne before. Which is why I love being in a wine club like Roshambo's. It's like a tasty education in wine. Now that I'm exposed to this varietal, I look forward to seeing who else makes a great Roussanne.
