Community Tasting Notes 5

    October 2, 2009 - Detecting a slight corky mustness...but really doesn't mask anything. Rich and creamy baked apple, pear, apricot, golden raisins....still high toned in citrus acidity, minerals, slight alc. heat. Has some nice aged honey butter, nuts, tobacco spice....vanilla oak creme, cotton candy, little wax. Really nice, when you get into it. Drinking more for contemplation now, rather than Summer sipper refreshing. For those who like what age brings to Roussanne.....

    April 27, 2007 - Grenache Blanc, Roussanne blend....bright citrus, minerals, high toned acidity....reminds me a little of a Gruner Veltliner with it's white pepper/tobacco spice. Shows ripe pear/peach fruit, lemon mousse, green chai tea, honey butter. Has a little bone dry alc heat...showing some bitters. Something different in the White camp. Holding well.

    April 23, 2006 - Wonderful wine. Been some time since I had tasted this bottle and to my pleasure, my buddy brough it last night to open. Oily texture, with minerals, lime and great weight. This wine is really drinking great right now.

    July 20, 2005 - Very fragrant and richly sweet nose of exotic fruits, flowers and a touch of petrol. Very stern steely mineral core. A little vegatal and white pepper, in a gruner vetliner sort of way. Explosive in the mouth and has a very persistent finish though a bit hot on the upper palate. 14.9% EtOH pokes through a sqosch but all-in-all nicely balanced.
