Medium golden yellow color. Aromas of omelet, struck match, pear, and grape jelly with a supple, crisp, fruity medium body and a medium-length pear gelato, crushed pineapple, banana leaf, and gravel finish with silky tannins. A nicely fruity wine for the table.

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.
