Medium golden yellow color. Aromas of peach pit, oregano, green papaya, and honeydew melon with a supple, tangy, dry medium body and a tingling, medium-length lemon tisane finish with soft tannins. A super-bright white blend; aerate well and then sip with salmon.

Rhone White Varietal Blend

The Rhône Rangers are a hearty band of US vintners who plant and promote lesser-known white varietals from France's Rhône Valley. They sing the praises of wines such as viognier, marsanne, roussanne and blends thereof.
