21 Colibri Marsanne
In 2019, we grafted Roussanne vines in this small block over to their counterpart, Marsanne. Only half of the grafts took, but luckily we were able to make two barrels of this heavenly nectar. DNA studies suggest that Marsanne is the most likely parent of Roussanne, which is why they are often mistaken for one another in the field, as well as in the bottle. As this block develops, we are starting to see its full potential. This wine is very expressive and unique. Give it two or three years in bottle to help the glimmers of spicy pear, honeysuckle and roasted nuts to develop more fully.
