An evening of Paso wines and this one starts us. True to southern Rhone, 71% Roussane, 21% Grenache Blanc and 8% Picpoul Blanc. Velvety texture almost like silk. Citrus rind, melon and burnt toast round the palate. Ends with a spice blood orange finish.

Very nice Rhone varietal. Great with a mildly spicy food, such as a grilled flank steak.

Nice white blend of 4 white made in the Rhône style. Not quite as interesting as I thought it would be. Easy drinking on its own or paired with food. Was on sale for $17.99.
