2017 Roussanne, JBV, $60

100% Roussanne

Irresistible aromas and flavors of salted caramel pear tart 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. Don’t hesitate to serve this wine at the end of your meal perhaps with vanilla poached pears and cheese. Drink now through 2029. This is a fun one to track so stock the cellar!

"Limpid straw-gold. An intensely perfumed bouquet evokes fresh, mineral-tinged pineapple, pear, orange zest and white flowers, along with a deeper suggestion of honey. Energetic, palate-staining tropical and orchard fruit and honeysuckle flavors show superb depth while betraying little excess fat. The mineral note builds steadily as the wine opens up and drives an extremely long, focused finish that features lingering floral, tropical fruit and smoky mineral notes." 94 pts Josh Raynolds, Vinous

"Distinctive and rich up front, this white is lush, oozing with notes of apricot preserves, honeysuckle and ripe peach. Full-bodied, but featuring a wonderfully fresh thread of acidity weaving in and out. Finishes on lingering accents of nutmeg and tobacco. Drink now. 200 cases made."    92 pts The Wine Spectator
