Energetic and ripe on the nose, this wine bowls you over with potent aromas of cling peach, brown sugar and cinnamon-spiced apricot. In the mouth it puts on a profoundly rich and decadent experience, coating the palate with crème de leche, candied mandarin orange, and white floral notes.
We harvested these grapes from our Estate Vineyards on 10/24/2019, more than 6 weeks after the harvest of our first white grapes of the vintage to allow a proper amount of sugar to develop.
Late Harvest wines have a relatively self-explanatory designation. In the best vintages, and with appropriate grapes, it is possible to leave a select few on the vine longer in order to produce a special and intense dessert wine. In our estimation this incredible Roussanne is the best late harvest wine we have ever produced, hailing from the amazingly high-quality 2019 vintage.
Food Pairing Notes
An exciting wine to have with a powerful partner like foie gras, apricot tart, or a pungent Roquefort cheese.
