2005 Tablas Creek Roussanne

$17.55 direct from Tablas Creek and worth every penny and then some!

Roasted nut, chocolate/caramel and peach aromas started things off nicely. This carried over onto the palate, along with butter, ripe pear, melon, and citrus fruit combined with lots of minerals that filled the mouth, everything balanced out by good acidity.

The finish lasted a long time.

This was one flavorful and complex wine with a very reasonable price tag. It gets two thumbs way up!

Here's a suitably coordinated YouTube music video to go along with the wine (click here if you can't see it below):
