WA 92 WS 90 - "Both Northern Rhône varietals, Roussanne adds great perfume and a certain delicacy, a touch of Marsanne yields added richness and body to the wine. The First Date is not a replica of a St. Joseph. We have found we can take these varietals to new heights by exploring their different flavor and aromatic profiles that California fruit has to offer."
Description

Details

WA 92 WS 90 Pts - According to Robert Parker - "The 2008 First Date Proprietary White, a blend of 75% Roussanne and 25% Marsanne aged partially in cement eggs, offers smoky, full-bodied buttered citrus notes intertwined with hints of wax, quince and marmalade. With superb fruit and freshness, this intense white will drink beautifully with full-flavored fish and poultry dishes."

According to Wine Spectator - "Lovely flavors of golden raisin, Asian pear and lemon curd are rich, sophisticated, and creamy-textured, with a vanilla bean paste note that opens up aromatically on the finish. Roussanne and Marsanne."
