2019 Cobden Wini Marsanne – Rousanne, Dalton Vineyad, Sierra Foothills


This wine is a stunner. If you are unfamiliar with Rhone whites, they are defined by texture, and drinking them should be a total experience. Rhone whites tend to have broad palates and richer mouthfeels, which often translates to less ripping acid, but a still full of life and tension.

Dalton Vineyard in the Sierra Foothills AVA. With an elevation of 1400 and sitting inland at the base of the Sierra Foothills, this vineyard sees conditions that are perfect for growing rhone varieties.

Well hello there.
