This wine was inspired by traditions from the Rhone Valley, while embracing the terrior of the Russian River Valley. The three varieties come together seamlessly, expressing stone fruit and floral aromatics, balanced with a distinctive minerality. Blend: 48% Roussanne, 35% Marsanne, 15% Viognier.
The Wine Advocate 91 - "The 2014 Cuvee Luke Saralee’s Vineyard is a wonderful Rhône Ranger blend of 48% Roussanne, 35% Marsanne and 17% Viognier. It is an outstanding effort, perfumed with notes of rose petals, honeysuckle, apricot and peach. This complex, dry white is medium to full-bodied and elegant. Something about this wine is vaguely reminiscent of Beaucastel’s Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc, made largely from Roussanne. "
Wine Enthusiast 90 - "This is a floral blend of 48% Roussanne, 35% Marsanne and 17% Viognier. The Roussanne speaks loudest, while the whole offers a mix of dried and fresh apricot and creamy vanilla wafer that's light bodied and fresh with acidity. "
