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."
Tasting Notes - "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." 75% Roussanne, 25% Marsanne. 15.2% ABV.
