August 13, 2014 - 100% Rousanne from Dineen Vineyard in the Columbia Valley. Medium gold with olive hue. Aromas of melon, cut grass, grapefruit, candel wax and a hint of caramel. Medium/full body, medium+ acidity, bright long finish. Flavours of honeydew and citrus notes with a hint of pear. 30 second finish. Very sophisticated.
March 2, 2014 - Pale straw, smoke and honey on nose Now tending to emphasize the mineral.1 person found this helpful Comment

January 2, 2014 - Delicious flavours of honeydew backed up with lemon zest and a nice acidity. Complex, rich and well-balanced, this is the best New World version of this varietal I have encountered.2 people found this helpful Comment

(Lauren Ashton Cellars Roussanne Columbia Valley) A moderately aromatic wine with straw, exotic spice, herbal tea, and citrus. The palate is medium-plus bodied with the focus more on texture than ripe fruit flavors. Draws out on the finish. 100% Roussanne. Dineen Vineyard. Aged in stainless steel (33%) and French oak (50% new). 13.2% alcohol. 97 cases produced. Sample provided by winery.
