This is Alamosa’s take on Rhone-style white blends.  Made from Marsanne (55%), Roussane (32%), and Viognier (13%), it has a strong backbone of minerality, good character, nice golden color, and finishes quite crisp.  You’ll notice some light floral notes to the bouquet and buttery notes as well as the wine unfolds across your palate. It initially presents a more acidic side, which gradually mellows with some of the buttery notes, but still quite tasty and pleasant.  Chill this very nice white wine and enjoy with fresh  salads, a big orange, vegetables, chicken and fish dishes.
