BALLARD CANYON AVA  |  SANTA BARBARA COUNTY

The 2017 Roussanne shows aromatics of flint, star anise and honeydew melon. Richly textured on the palate, flavors include white peach and hints of toasted brioche. Finishes long, with a clean minerality. Our Roussanne has a history of aging gracefully and should develop more honey and nutty characteristics over time.

Wine Enthusiast  93 Points Cellar Section

Roussanne is one of the white wines that will age for eons when done right, and this is a prime example. Restrained aromas of honey, almond, orange rind and brioche lead into a palate that’s rich yet structured with flavors of creamy milk toast, marzipan, orange and hazelnut. Drink now through 2032. — Matt Kettmann

2016 Roussanne, Stolpman Vineyard

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.

2015 Roussanne, Stolpman Vineyard
Wine Enthusiast  92 Points Editors' Choice

This is as well-balanced an interpretation of Roussanne as they come in California—proudly plump but not flabby. Light gold in color, it offers caramelized banana, custard, beeswax and apple blossom aromas. A backbone of lemony acidity runs through the palate, buttressed with ripe melon, mango and more tropical fruit flavors.
