The attractive 2007 Roussanne displays more waxy orange marmalade notes, medium body, with a slight touch of tannin, and a pleasant finish. It is a lighter Roussanne, but commercially has appeal. Drink it over the next year. Firm and focused, with pear, fig, nut, mineral and spice flavors that are robust, finishing with a touch of heat. Drink now. 1,943 cases made. -MW ** SOLD OUT **
After being hand harvested, this Roussanne was gently pressed and placed in French oak barrels to ferment. The wine was then aged “sur lie” or on the lees (yeast and solids) for 8 months, stirring each barrel regularly to enhance the rich, creamy mouth feel.
On the nose, aromas of apricots, figs, honey and spice fill the glass. A lingering finish has a touch of minerality, a signature characteristic of our vineyard. Enjoy with grilled halibut, lobster risotto or rosemary roasted chicken over the next five years.
