The 2019 Roussanne bursts from the glass with alluring aromas of caramel apple, cantaloupe, limoncello, and pink grapefruit, while more delicate aromas of rose, juniper, and wild spearmint. These vivid aromas seize your senses and lead you into an elegant, well-structured palate of vibrant Meyer lemon, Asian pear, and peach ring. Lusciously textured waves of creaminess and minerality add multi-dimensional layers all the way to the finish, which pops with a splash of exhilarating acidity. This wine is a spritzy, refreshing delight to drink now, and will continue to evolve for the next 2-3 years.
