This is a blend of Roussanne, Grenache Blanc, Picpoul Blanc, Picardan, and Clairette Blanche. From a 375ml size bottle which is a great format for early drinking or when one wants just another glass or two. Light golden in color, clear and bright. The nose is nice with pears, spice, slight wax, and slight honey. On the palate, this is full bodied. The pears come thru along with the baking spices. Good balance. Light tannins. Long finish. White Rhone varietals can be tricky to age, but this seems like it should be good for five to seven and probably more. It will work well with sea
Consistently one of the great wine values, year in and year out. This retails for $10. Light golden in color with some green swirls. The nose has nice minerality, slight melon and citrus. On the palate, this drinks easy. A slightly bitter citrus pith note which is nice, but also some melon and underlying minerality. Easy. Not complex but not nothing either. Good balance. Works with lighter and medium weight foods and on its own. Drink them young as while the wine is still good after a few years, the freshness fades.
One of the great white Rhone wines from California. 50% Roussanne, 20% Grenache Blanc, 10% Vermentino, 10% Picpoul, 10% Marsanne. Green gold in color. The nose has slight limes with some citrus and slight wax. On the palate, this has a wonderful plush texture with great crispness on the wine. Deep and complex despite its youth, it unwinds in the glass. Slightly oily. Long finish. Works with or without foods. This will likely age well, but is so good now, I don't think it gets better, just different.
30% Rousanne, 25% Marsanne, 20% Grenache Blanc, 15% Picpoul, and 10% Vermentino. This is one of my favorite (mostly) Rhone white wines from Paso Robles. Light golden in color. The nose is really nice with peaches, slight canned peaches, a nice minerals streak, some vanilla candle and some lemon peel. On the palate, this has a great oily texture. Slightly viscous. An excellent crispness. Depth and complexity. Do not serve this too cold as the complexity really comes out when the wine starts to get over 60F. Peaches, lemons, and minerals. Long finish. Great with food.
Light yellow, silvery, gold in color. Really nice nose with slight waxiness, minerals, citrus and slight dust. On the palate, this is crisp. Good citrus. Deep but tight. This wine drinks well now, but should improve in a cellar for a decade at least. Long finish. Very food friendly. Pretty wine.
