Review:

The 2010 vintage has aromas of stone fruit and minerals followed by flavors of lush, ripe fruit. The texture is stunning and will allow the wine to age quite well.

2008 Vintage Tasting Notes

The seventh vintage of Andrew's Roussanne, Andrew was one of the first northwest winemakers to offer the varietal.

The 2008 Roussanne shows classic aromas of stone fruits and minerals, with a palate that sacrifices a bit of 07ís stoniness for pure lush fruit. With its simply gorgeous texture, this wine should continue to gain in complexity over the next several years. - the winery

2006 Vintage Tasting Notes

"Sourced from Ciel du Cheval, Alder Ridge, and Lonesome Springs, my 2006 was fermented slowly in neutral French oak, remaining on the lees until bottling in July. The nose reveals scents of flowers, honey, minerals and stone fruits, while the palate is rich, structured, and somehow elegant all at once. It can be drunk now and over the next two or three years. Serve it with rich, complex dishes - scallops and Dungeness crab are ideal."

Andrew Rich "makes a brilliant Roussanne from Columbia Valley grapes. His 2006 Roussanne ($21) is an aromatic, luscious wine with intriguing scents of beeswax, honey and caramel, melded to tropical fruits and details of baking spices." Paul Gregutt, Seattle Times

"The great white grape of France's Rhone Valley was first planted in Eastern Washington in the late 90's, so it's not surprising that most people are still unaware of its existence. That's too bad because Roussanne is already proving itself to be well-suited to the Columbia Valley's warm, dry climate."
