100% Roussanne. A few years ago we started aging the Roussanne for 16-20 months. That extra bit of time created a wine with more nuance and complexity while at the same time bringing more focus to the wine. It is a wine of intoxicating aromatics, conjuring notes of honeysuckle, stone fruits and fresh bread. An expansive palate fills ones mouth with a core of Bit O’Honey, gingerbread and poached quince. A bit of uplifting acid on the finish takes you back for more. This wine requests a decant in the early years but will age gracefully for 10-15 years. Drink 2018-2030.
100% Roussanne. Irresistible aromas and flavors of salted caramel pear tartan with a butter crust are followed by marzipan and white pepper spice. This is a medium to full bodied white that we love to drink with oil poached tuna with almonds and raisins. (recipe with your shipment). Don’t hesitate to serve this wine at the end of your meal perhaps with vanilla poached pears and cheese. Drink now and through 2029. This is a fun one to track so stock the cellar!
100% Fiano. This Fiano’s twinkling pale honey color is deceiving. The wine is rich while still lively, fruited and savory. Aromas of freshly sliced apples with a squeeze of lemon engage the nose. The first sip is at once electric and elegant with notes of apricots and marmalade, lavender and a hint of clove. The minerality lingers and makes this wine the perfect complement to your summer raw bar. Drink now and for the next 5 years.
