Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2014 Roussanne is medium in weight with a supple mouth-feel and cleansing acidity on the finish. This wine has primary aromatics of lemon zest, white flowers, and hazelnut, coupled with subtle notes of wet river rock, honey, and nutmeg.
Winemaker's Notes
The 2014 Roussanne comes from our 2 vineyards – our White Oak Flats site and Elenridge Vineyard. We blended in a touch of Viognier from each of our estate locales into the final wine. The 2014 rendition was barrel fermented on its lees in 27% stainless steel, 29% a new French Hogshead barrel, and 44% in neutral French barriques.
