Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2013 Roussanne is medium in weight with a supple mouth-feel and cleansing acidity on the finish. This wine starts out with aromatics of hazelnut, butterscotch, and straw bale before opening up to notes of quince, nutmeg, citrus zest, and white flowers.
Winemaker's Notes
The 2013 Roussanne comes from our 2 estate vineyards and 2 sites located in the northern part of the county. We co-fermented a small percentage of Marsanne, and blended in a touch of Viognier and Picpoul Blanc to complement the final wine. The 2013 rendition was barrel fermented on its lees in 30% stainless steel, 24% a new French Hogshead barrel, and 46% in neutral French barriques. This wine spent nearly 2 years on its gross lees prior to being bottled unfined and unfiltered.
