Roussanne is a richly complex white grape indigenous to the Rhône region of
France. Here in California the grape has found its home in the cool, ocean breezes
found along the Central Coast. Our vineyard represents an ideal site, where our
sandy loam soils, higher elevation and breezy afternoons produce one of the most
complex, mineral-driven examples of the grape in California.
The 2013 Roussanne shows impeccable balance between elegant textures and
acidity. Its complex layers consist of spiced pear, golden apples, pear skin, golden
fig, bees wax, honey, mineral and spice.
