2020 Westwood Roussanne/Viognier, Annadel Gap, Sonoma Valley
The 2020 Roussanne/ Viognier blend is aromatically bright and forward yet is still complex the way Roussanne should be. A medium-bodied wine that offers an alluring orchard-fruit nose of ripe peach, and pear, as well as notes of lemon candy, honey suckle and wet stone minerality. The lovely fruit continues on the palate where the pear is accompanied by distinct notes of waxy raw honey, accentuated by harmonious acidity, with hints of lemon cream and sweet thyme.
The Annadel Gap Vineyard is a special place. Located between Mt. Hood and the Sonoma Mountains, our estate is characterized by thick morning fog, and strong afternoon winds. Alluvial, glacial, and sedimentary influences create a wide array of soil types. Ideal growing conditions, varied soils, and our minimal-impact farming methods yield precise, balanced fruit.
