So fun and decadent. White CDPesque in profile and weight - slight candied citrus and nuttiness takes it back to Paso though. These age beautifully

Gorgeous. Oh man. Healthy percentage of roussanne(75%) gives it great body, significant "peanut butter" aroma with a big juicy mid palate, bruised apple and a soft graceful finish.

Excellent choice for a "cold" winter evening (78 degrees at sunset). Paired with homemade pesto sauce and penne pasta.

What might be difficult to read offs this wine's blend: 75% Roussanne 20% Grenache Blanc and 5% Picpoul Blanc. Mouth watering goodness! There perfect wine for dinner on deck last night on a muggy evening in Chicago. Great acidity, spice, depth/structure of Roussanne definitely there and great aromatics. Fantastic wine.
