The 2022 Roussanne bursts from the glass with alluring aromas of lemon candy, freshly baked brioche, yellow apple, and lime leaf, while more delicate aromas of rose, marzipan, daffodil, and chamomile tea add depth and interest. These vivid aromas seize your senses and lead you into an elegant, well-structured palate of vibrant gooseberry compote, lime zest, fresh peach, and a hint of white pepper. 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.
