Straw green color. Aromas of pear cobbler, cinnamon and passionfruit, pine, and fresh cream and young banana with a creamy, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, interesting, medium-length marshmallow, graham cracker, spiced nuts, and candied kiwi finish with well-integrated, medium tannins and moderate oak flavor. A creamy and rich Marsanne/Roussanne blend for spicy dishes.

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.
