A full body, heavy blanc Hermitage, 66% Marsanne and 34% Roussanne. Yellow hay color, brilliant. Noticed nose of pear, strudel apple, even guave.
Thick palate, meaty in structure (for wine), very balanced. Missing the final kick of the minerality. Great experience. — a month ago
Pretty stellar. One of the best Rhone whites I have had in a very long time. — a month ago
2017 enjoyed 10/7/2023. nose: caramelized pineapple, wavering between oxidative and candied. wiffs of fresh floral pass quickly, stony/mineral undertone. palate: medium body, oily viscosity, high acid and mineral leave my tongue tingling. gorgeous. glad that I opened. — 2 months ago
This is a delicious Rhone style white wine from Horse Haven Hills in Washington State.
Dry on the palate with nice complexity. Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel.
This Single Vineyard feels very much like a Rhone white.
A blend of 55% Roussanne, 30% Marsanne and 15% Viognier.
13.2% alcohol by volume.

Tightly wound nose, lots of beeswax, white florals and some stone fruit, rounded by oak. Palate in unfortunately alcohol-first (I guessed 14.5 but it’s 15!) but layers of texture. Good bit hot, more pedigree than magic — 4 days ago
2022 vintage. 40% Marsanne. 25% Clairette. 30% Ugni Blanc. 5% Bourboulenc. Medium-bodied. For those times when you don't want bubbles, Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc...perfect shellfish and white-fleshed fish pairing along with lunch salads and lighter soups. Or, you could just sip it by the seaside. Tastes entirely appropriate. 10.18.23. — a month ago
