Stolpman Vineyards L'Avion Roussane Santa Ynez Valley
Description: A cellar selection that comes from two blocks of older Roussanne vines that were planted in 1996 and 2001, the 2013 L'Avion (100% barrel-fermented Roussanne) is beautiful, and a clear step up over the straight Roussanne. Giving up fabulous notes of butter peach, creme, flower, brioche and honey, it's full-bodied, concentrated and juicy, with beautiful freshness balanced by plenty of fruit. I'd drink it over the coming year or two, but it will certainly have an interesting evolution well past that. This will give many an Hermitage and St Joseph Blanc a run for their money. - Robert Parker,Wine Advocate
