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.

Enjoyed at Stones Throw in San Francisco. Great floral nose, smooth creamy mouthfeel. Great wine!

Tropical fruit, pretty lively initially then the drop off. Value? Not sure. Don't love as much as the Syrah!
