OMG 😮 this 2008 is amazing! Not at all oxidized. Beautiful stone fruit and white flowers on nose. Rich apricot and still good acid. Honey on the finish. Had aged extremely well! — 4 days ago

Côtes du Rhône-Brézème Roussanne 2017

For whatever reason, I love connecting wine to memories from my childhood and Roussanne always reminds me of pull tab canned fruit cocktail - the syrupy kind with the peaches and the apricots and the neon cherry glowing prize. If you save the pulpy liquid for the end, you’d have a version of Roussanne. While I love the flavors, I’ve had many meak, watery, angular examples.

This is bullseye. Expertly assembled. Take those fruit cocktail notes and add a good dash of cinnamon and nutmeg. So good.

Lyseras Saint-Joseph Marsanne Roussanne Blend 2016

Give this 30 minutes of air... nose is a floral melody of fresh yellow and white flowers. Honeycomb and subtle ginger root are there too. Soft and round mouthfeel, honeydew melon, jasmine, and subtle tropical fruit. Acidity is medium minus, but minerality and melon fruit carry on an elegant finish. — 3 days ago

Rich and complex but noticeably more complex and interesting closer to room temp when it when shows a tangerine peel element than makes me think, now, of Persian chicken and rice dishes as a perfect accompaniment. — 14 days ago

Owen Roe

Coop Yakima Valley Viognier Blend 2014

This is simply delicious. Another Owen Roe winner. 73% Viognier, 14% Muscat and 13% Roussanne. This is a cooperative employee share wine. Creamy mouthfeel of mango and honeysuckle. Hint of vanilla. Peaches and some nut. Richness from the Roussanne helps round out this wine. At $10.99 on sale at Whole Foods...I’m going back to buy a case! — 13 days ago

L'Anglore Eyrolle Lirac Roussanne 2014

Nose of red berries, white/black pepper, rocky stream in a forest with crisp moist air. There is still a decent tannic structure, drying out my pallet and front of the tongue. Red berries come through again with that pepper spice and good bit of minerals. It’s quite tasty. — 18 days ago

Yakima Valley Roussanne 2016

Revisiting this wine and vintage. Good acidity, bone dry, pleasant mix of tropical fruit (guava, mango), nectarine, malic and citrus flavors. Mineral finish though no apparent lees character in initial tasting. Better integrated than previous tasting. A really remarkable everyday table wine that’s made for a special occasion. — a month ago
