2016 Roussanne, Stolpman Vineyard
BALLARD CANYON AVA | SANTA BARBARA COUNTY
The 2016 Roussanne shows flavors of jasmine, chamomile and melon. A richly textured wine, with refreshing acidity. Our Roussanne has a history of aging gracefully, and should develop more honey and nutty characteristics over time.
WINE ENTHUSIAST 91 Points
A strong shade of yellow in the glass, this bottling shows aromas of whipped cream, preserved lemon peels and a hint of smoked white meat, all honed in by a citrusy sharpness. The palate proves fresh, bright and tense, making the mouth water with a hint of sea salt along with creamy cherimoya and a touch more smoke.
