RED MOUNTAIN AVA
Our 2019 Roussanne is a very restrained vintage, requiring some time in the glass before whispered aromas of Asian pear, chamomile and kiwi can be coaxed out. Although energetic, it glides effortlessly on the palate without excessive weight, carrying welcoming cucumber and green apple flavors on a very Old World structure. This vintage shows hints of lemongrass, satay sauce and lime zest, making it a fantastic pairing with Asian food.
Bearing the name inspired by its russet-colored skin, Roussanne is one of the few noble white grapes that can retain natural acidity and crisp structure nurtured under our beloved Red Mountain sun. This is an aromatic wine full of juicy lime and honeysuckle blossom showing both vibrant and delicate qualities free from any oak intervention. As a single vineyard wine from the famed Ciel du Cheval vineyard in the Red Mountain AVA, the distinctive mineral complexity is the foundation of every vintage.
