International Wine Cellar Author: Josh Raynolds Issue: Issue 135

($35; 70% roussanne, 25% grenache blanc and 5% picpoul) Medium gold. Powerful, exotic aromas suggest honeyed apple and peach, with a suave vanilla component building with air. Round and vaguely sweet orchard fruit flavors are snapped into shape by brisk minerality, which carries into the finish. Suave, deeply flavored and impressively persistent, with the concentration and balance to repay a few years in the cellar.

70% Roussanne really shows through. Rich and creamy, with dried fruit, nuts, caramelized apple and citrus notes. Beautifully layered. Has aged gracefully.

The nose of this deep golden yellow blend of Roussanne, Grenache Blanc, and Picpoul Blanc barely eeked out aromas of honeyed nectarines and white flowers. Its flavor was similarly reticent, tasting at first of a slightly sweet honey wine. However, it also has an extraordinary minerality and just enough viscosity to coat the tongue and linger on the palate for an extremely long time. The effect of this incredibly long finish is a compounding and eventual strengthening of its flavor to a quite pleasing degree over time, and before you know it - the bottle will be empty and you'll wish you had more. This wine also really shined served with prawns.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon. On the nose it smells like mentholed cherry candies, like cherry Halls. On the palate, it lacks in acidity, flavors, depth. In brief, don't waste your time and money.
