2018 Roussanne

100% Roussanne. 2018 Roussanne James Berry Vineyard is golden straw in color boasting intoxicating aromatics of grilled white nectarine, flint, fresh bread and white flowers. The palate walks a perfect line between power and grace. Stone fruits are complicated with honeysuckle, thyme, and lemon zest finishing with a nervy intensity that has you salivating for that next glass. Stock up on this one as it will be tough to keep your hands off of and will cellar for a decade or more. Drink 2020-2035

"Translucent yellow. Penetrating aromas of fresh orchard and pit fruits are accompanied by hints of chalky minerals, tarragon and pungent flowers. Juicy and concentrated in style, offering Meyer lemon, pear nectar, white peach and honeysuckle flavors that show fine definition and energetic lift on the back half. The floral note repeats strongly on the finely etched finish, which hangs on with impressive, mineral-tinged persistence." 94 pts - Vinous Media

2018 High Road

60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 20% Mourvedre. Another exceptional vintage off of James Berry Vineyard has created a wine that has texture, finesse, and approachability along with weight, complexity and the ability to cellar. This wine was co-fermented with various percentages of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvedre depending on the picks. The overall blend is 35% whole clusters and 20% new French oak (500 liter puncheons). Deep garnet in color, it offers amazing aromatics of black and red fruits, cured meats, Silver Lupine (a California wildflower), and spice. Its palate is sexy, rich and textural with just enough verve to have you salivating for more. While enjoyable now, it will deliver in spades with a few years of patience in your cellar. Drink 2021-2035

"Deep, bright-rimmed ruby. Powerful, mineral-accented black/blue fruit and floral oil aromas pick up exotic spice and pipe tobacco nuances with air. Fleshy, juicy and impressively concentrated, offering ripe boysenberry, black raspberry, cherry liqueur and violet pastille flavors that tighten up steadily on the back half. Densely packed yet energetic as well, finishing with resonating florality, gently gripping tannins and superb persistence." 96 pts - Vinous Media
