Sosie’s 2017 Roussanne comes from the Vivio Vineyard in Bennett Valley, a hidden gem for winemakers, especially those who love Rhône varietals. Even though Bennett Valley is situated inland, it benefits from a strong marine influence that contributes to a long, slow growing season, which in turn, gives the grapes a concentrated flavor profile.
Deep golden in color, this 2017 Roussanne opens with aromas of ripe apricot and orange blossom that are accented by chamomile and honey. The ripe apricot notes continue on the palate, followed by rich flavors of tart lemon and orange peel. The finish is slightly nutty with an even slighter note of bergamot. It is as close to the true Rhone-style Roussanne as they come. Enjoy!
