Roussanne is a richly complex white grape indigenous to the Rhône region of France. Here in California, Zaca Mesa Vineyard represents an ideal site, where complex sandy loam soils, high elevation and breezy afternoons produce one of the most complex and mineral-driven examples in California. The 2014 Roussanne shows an impeccable balance between elegant textures and bright acidity. Its complex layers consist of spiced pear, bruised apples, pear skin, golden fig, beeswax, dried honey, mineral, and brown spices.
