2009 Round River Ranch
Bachelor Valley - Lake County
Our 2009 Roussanne boasts great structure and full palate weight. The wine delivers up front with honeysuckle and apricot notes with a clean crisp entry on the font of the palate. The mineral notes under luscious round full-mouth caramelizing fruit and balanced acidity allow this wine to be enjoyed with or without food. Drink now and within the next 3-4 years.

Accolades & Awards
"Aged for 9 months in neutral French oak, the 2009 Vie Winery Roussanne Round River Ranch is a classy, rich Roussanne that stays fresh, crisp, and focused. Showing loads of golden apple, butter crème, mineral, toasted hazelnut, and a touch of honey, this medium to full-bodied white is lively in the mouth and has juicy acidity, a layered, rich texture, and a dry finish. In addition to all of the acidity here, it has real structure and depth, and should age beautifully. While I?d drink bottle over the coming handful of years, my money is on it still showing well out as far as a decade. "
