Cave B Estate Winery 2015 Roussanne, Ancient Lakes of Columbia Valley, $25

By on September 19, 2016

cave-b-roussanneThis longtime winery overlooks the Columbia River next to the world-famous Gorge Amphitheater (which was founded by Cave B’s owners). Roussanne still is a bit unusual in Washington, but the white Rhône Valley grape is revealing great promise in arid Eastern Washington. This is a beautifully crafted wine with hints of unsweetened ice tea and spiced pear, followed by flavors of peach and ripe apple in the finish. This won gold at the 2016 Wenatchee Wine & Food Festival wine competition.
