    ($40; 65% roussanne, 30% grenache blanc and 5% picpoul) Pale gold. Vibrant quince and green apple on the nose, with energetic citrus zest and minerals adding energy. Sharply focused lime and apple flavors are impressively balanced and clean, with slow-building honey and tangerine adding depth. Finishes with impressively pure, vibrant citrus flavors and excellent length. A very fresh blend.

    A superb effort, the 2006 Esprit de Beaucastel (45% Mourvedre, 28% Grenache, 22% Syrah, and 5% Counoise) boasts a deep ruby/purple hue along with aromas of blue and black fruits, forest floor, and spring flowers, and a full-bodied personality displaying terrific intensity, richness, and length. Drink it over the next 10-12 years.

    Tangy, with citrus, spice and a pleasantly bitter finish. Subtle floral and honey flavors are wrapped in a youthful body that's a bit coarse for now. Roussanne, Grenache Blanc and Picpoul Blanc.

    Initial taste and nose of citrus replaced by strong apricot flavors and floral nose as the wine is exposed to oxygen. Rich mouth feel from the rousanne.

    Light blonde-gold in color, this wine has a rich nose of star fruit, mineral, and floral aromas. In the mouth the overwhelming impression is one of balance and delicacy, though this is quickly eclipsed by a sensuousness of texture upon which float flavors of white peaches, pears, and a calcified minerality that extend into a long, beautiful finish.

    This golden hued blend of Roussanne, Grenache Blanc, and Picpoul Blanc from Paso Robles presented a curious nose that approximated tropical fruit, rose petals, hazelnut, and vanilla. I use the word |approximated| to try and engender some sense that these descriptions do not quite hit the mark. The elusive quality of the nose was focused by the flavor, which included flowery, honeyed pear, white pepper, and a noticeable minerality (though not nearly so prominent as the 2005). This wine would be an excellent pairing with shellfish or rich fish.
