As growers of Roussanne ourselves, we absolutely love the varietal and are pleased to be working with Zaca Mesa Vineyard to provide another excellent bottling of this unique grape to our customers.
Zaca Mesa Vineyard is one of the oldest vineyards in the region, situated at the extreme north end of the Santa Ynez Valley AVA. Offering a much cooler growing climate than our estate Roussanne, this lovely Roussanne shows dried plantain and honeysuckle aromatics alongside a vibrant limestone minerality on the nose. The palate brings a distinctive weight characteristic of the grape, with copious stone fruit and beeswax elements. The finish is long and wide with subtle hints of marzipan.
