I liked this wine quite a bit. Antica Terra producer. Worth seeking out.

2011 Lillian Roussanne from Maggie Harrison, former Sine Qua Non assistant winemaker, and now of Antica Terra as well as her own label, Lillian. I've been a fan of Maggie's since she left the SQN nest. Her Lillian Syrah never fails to impress, and this Roussanne is equally compelling. Butterscotch and buttered popcorn on the nose followed by a mid palate of mango, fresh peaches and a savory finish note that makes me think Brie cheese. But Roussanne is all about texture for me, and this one is positively unctuous. Reminiscent of Manfred's whites. Need I say more?

I mean, super odd. Peach, pickle, and wax. Honeycomb on the nose.
