Alban Estate Vineyard Roussanne 2011

My amazing wife of 16 years (as of today) wanted an older roussanne to start off with. This 2011 is the oldest one we have in the cellar. The color as well as the nose are fantastic. The palate is a little flat, suggesting to me this is on its way to reemerging but not quite there yet. But, still a great way to start off the evening on a beautiful night in Michigan! — 7 days ago

White Mt. Amasa Viognier Blend 2017

Woot! First Israeli wine, a lil closer to completing my global wine bingo card.

52% Viognier, 33% Chenin Blanc, 25% Roussanne. 13.5% ABV

Lite crisp and fruity, balanced. Floral and lemony, pleasant, super easy to drink. What makes this wine successful, is the winemakers call to use amphora, neutral barrel, and stainless steel. Nicely done.

Bonofiglio Vineyard "Unsung Hero" Viognier Blend 2019

Very bright and floral with some tannic grip from the skin contact. Kind of one note though overall (even though it’s a pretty nice note).
Edit: just tried this again on day 2. This is definitely better after being open. Overall palate is more complex.

Vieilles Vignes St. Joseph Marsanne Roussanne Blend 2016

A very well made wine, but on the personal pleasure scale it’s not a favorite. I’m not sure why but it’s becoming increasingly clear to me I’m not a Marsanne guy. The nose has that hard marzipan, minerally nose that Marsanne sports. Round texture contrasts with the whack of bitterish minerals in the mouth. Not a lot on the back end. I know others will enjoy this more than I did, so this rating is not pleasure-based but technical based. — 18 days ago

"Domaine Romaneaux-Destezet" Vin de Pays de l'Ardèche Blanc Viognier Roussanne

2020/5 with the aged Northern Rhone reds. This fortuitously arrived from Pcouer just as I was thinking of trying a couple of bottle from the Northern Rhone stash. Really nice - waxy and yellow-fruited, but not blowsy or overwhelmed by the Viogner — 5 days ago


Kimsey Vineyard Roussanne 2015

Three barrels produced. Kinsey vineyard. Dried apricot, honey, white peach, and waxy pears. Viscous orchard fruit with a yellow peach palate. Creamy mouthfeel. Moderate minus acidity. Hints of oak barrel char, with just a touch of fruit sweetness. Paired well with spicy BBQ chicken pizza. — 20 days ago

Southern White Rhone Blend 2019

More mineral nose than past blends. Zesty lemon and pear with a delicate floral note. Although 75% Viognier, this didn’t show overwhelming varietal characteristics. Delicious stone fruit, delicate pear, and wet rock flavors. To me, this is Sean’s best Southern White Blend to date. — 4 days ago

Roussanne 2016

Golden yellow color. I'm going to jump right into the palate and textured. Oily with some weight but a great backbone and the right amount of acid to balance. The texture is amazing. A slight eucalyptus and mintyness as well.

So well balanced and dangerously smooth. Having with cheese and head cheese.
