White Wine by Big Basin from Santa Cruz Mountains, California. 2014 is quickly gaining notoriety as an exceptional vintage. While it was one of the earliest harvest in history, the wines show beautiful finesse and complexity and relatively low alcohol levels and this Roussanne is no exception. The cool Santa Cruz Mountains are ideal for producing a Roussanne that is aromatically complex with finesse and body, but without becoming ponderous and heavy. This is a Roussanne with energy, freshness and a fantastic mid palate density. The best pairing for this wine is with scallops. Crab, lobster or white fish will also not disappoint!
