BRAND NEW FIND!

"(the Roussanne was barrel-fermented and the Marsanne made in stainless steel): Bright, light yellow. Lively aromas of lemon drop and mint. Pungent and penetrating, with grapefruity acidity energizing the middle palate. This very refreshing wine finishes with dusty phenolic grip. Winemaker Sean Boyd noted that the Roussanne brings more volume to the wine, and that the Marsanne crop was a bit lighter than usual in '17. (11.2% alcohol)" (VM)

"Coming from an appellation where white wines are seldom seen, this wine is a blend of Marsanne (70%) and Roussanne. Vibrant notes of honeysuckle and white peach lead to a palate that is considerably more reserved than the aromas might suggest, with graceful citrus on the finish." (WE)

Winery Notes:
70% Marsanne, 30% Roussanne

Clean meets Rich

Hints of Lemon, honeysuckle and jasmine round out this voluptuous white.
