Stolpman Vineyards L'Avion Santa Ynez Valley Roussanne 2011

$34.99

A fantastic White Blend from California's Central Coast. Limited.Robert Parker:  "The delicious L'Avion (100% Roussanne) offers attractive orange, nectarine, and honeysuckle aromas and flavors, medium to full body, good underlying acidity and freshness, and ripe fruit. Enjoy it over the next year." Stolpman Vineyard’s 12 acres of Roussanne, the primary varietal of this wine, represents a significant portion of the 165 total planted acres in all of California. The proprietary name L’Avion (The Airplane in French) refers to the long narrow stretch of land where the Roussanne is grown, once used as an air strip by local ranchers. The 2011 Stolpman L’Avion is a blend of 90% Roussanne and 10% Viognier. The wine shows a rich soft mouth feel with flavors of tropical fruit and a bouquet of honeysuckle.

I want to lose myself in this bottle. This stuff is ridiculously unbelievably good and makes me want to hug someone.

Ripe yellow peaches, toasted/candied almond, Bosc pear, something like ground coffee (weird I know)- medium plus viscosity, full fruit on palate, custardy with hints of marzipan and vanilla. Yum.

Bones were absolutely there, but there were some signs of seepage and this seemed to be showing it a bit..

Marzipan and poached pear on the nose. Medium - to low acidity. Medium + alcohol. Nice round, subtle texture. Medium + body and alcohol. Medium + finish. Nice expression of Roussanne.
