Tried this last night:
1. OjaiVnyd Roussanne BienNacidoVnyd/SantaMariaVlly (13.5%) 2013: Med.gold color; rather pear/appley very light honeysuckly/Rouss very light pencilly/oak rather pinched/restrained nose; fairly tart/lean/tight light pear/appley very light pencilly/oak fairly austere flavor; med.long austere/very tart/lean slight nutmeg/pencilly/oak light appley/pear finish; more like early Qupe Marsanne than a Roussanne; a rather tart/tight/pinched/angular/austere Roussanne. $23.40
A wee BloodyPulpit:
1. This wine is pretty much in keeping w/ Adam's new style of white wines: lower alcohol/higher acidity/earlier harvesting. It lacks richness & texture & uncuousness. Not particularly a pleasure to drink. But then neither is young Chablis. I suspect that this wine will develop into something pretty interesting in 4-8 yrs. But that's just a guess.
