Weighty richness on the palette with just the right amount of acidity. Quince and ripe red apple dominate with candied lemon zest, and a touch of wet stone minerality.

2013,,, Black Sheep Finds, Holus-Bolus Santa Maria Valley, Roussane. A California Roussane. Waxy, stone fruit with an acidic backbone. Good stuff. Paired well with halibut but would sing with a roast chicken.

Really nice dry crispness to it. Has a surprisingly smooth and enjoyable acidity. Crisp apples, citrus and tropical notes
