Sipping Fine Wine

JWC founded by Craig Jaffurs, known for his Rhone blends, & released his first commercial wine in 1994. Craig turned the business over to Dan & Janelle Green in 2016. This is made with 100% Roussanne, which is a bit unusual as there is usually a blend. 100% of the Roussanne is aged on French oak (12% new), reflecting aromas of tropical fruit, floral and notes of honey. On the palate pineapple and apricot with bright acidity and a touch of citrus spice. Medium finish, elegant, ending with a gentle sweetness. Very nice! Tasting Sample!
