Deep garnet color portends the effusive rich aromas that leap from the glass. Ripe black cherry, sandalwood and a hint of red apple are the primary aromas, with an underbelly of lees character providing another level of complexity.
Supple mouth filling entrance that embraces you with incredible richness, all balanced with plum skin astringency and acidity. Black cherry, plum and a touch of brioche on the finish completes this hedonistic wine.
Pinot Noir is a perfectly suited wine to pair with a wide variety of foods because of the bright acidity. This wine offers complexity and rich fruit to go along with that acidity. It pairs well with Salmon off the grill or braised Duck Breast. Because of the depth of flavor with this particular bottling, it would also be perfect with Braised Short Ribs with an Asian Spice accent.
This elegant Rosé is vibrant and fresh; aromas of white peach and nectarine emerge from the glass with a bit of bubble gum that provides a touch of sweetness. Beautiful floral notes of scented jasmine expand into the glass as it opens. The lovely soft peach color is reminiscent of previous vintages, and Provence in general, which gives clear evidence of the wine we’ve come to love. Mouth filling orchard fruit and lemon peel notes give way to bracing acidity, wild strawberry, sea shell minerality and a hint of lavender to remind us of its home by the sea. It pairs perfectly with any Mediterranean dish, including seafood, poultry, spicy meats or vegetable ratatouille. Soft, sensuous, seductive Rosé.
The rolling hills of Santa Barbara County provide the perfect balance of warm sunshine and the cooling effect from the Pacific Ocean for growing Rhone style varietals. Fruit for our Vin Blancs White Rhone Blend is sourced from top-notch vineyards in this prime growing area. Our Vin Blancs is a careful blend of Viognier, Roussanne and Marsanne. Our Vin Blancs is a bright, rich wine that first presents a full range of floral notes, honeysuckle and citrus blossom aromas. The lush mouthfeel and bracing acidity provide the perfect balance to the wine.
The nose on this beautiful light hay toned wine is a bright and energetic aroma, blending scents of white Plumeria flower interlaced with fresh pear and just a touch of citrus zest.Theflavors continue this intermingling of topicality with notes of added depth. There’s a heart of rich honey that runs right down the palate with layers of paraffin, more pear and a bit of wet stone spreading out from this core.
The 2016 Big Bend Chardonnay is a medium bodied wine full of chalky minerality and a lovely richness that blends old world wine making sensibility with perfectly grown and delicately harvested fruit. The aromatics show vanilla, tropical fruits and white flower. The palette displays medium weight in the mouth, flavors of green apple and pear balanced with wet stone, lemon curd and green papaya. There’s a lovely characteristic of richness to this wine that ends in a lingering and mouthwatering finish.
This is one of those rare Chardonnays that is balanced and bright. It would pair beautifully with most seafood, especially anything accented with citrus and tropical fruit. Because of the wonderful balance it’s also great for anyparty scene as a reception or starter wine.
Vinous on approach with wild briar patch red fruit. These aromas blend into the flavors further enhanced with ripe raspberry, leather and toasted brioche on the long finish. A warm and wild Carignane that will benefit from decanting for one hour prior to serving.
You are first introduced to crushed red fruit, with plum skin with a hint of brown sugar coming forward as the aroma evolves. On first taste the entrance is soft and rich with toasted oak, blueberries and a touch of rose water. The mouthfeel is full with a medium long finish.
For over 40 years the names Roessler and Marioni have been connected to food and wine. This bottling represents yet another chapter in their family ties. Alexander Valley has long been known as the home to many great Bordeaux varietals. This Proprietary Blend is a classic example which displays lovely aromas of pepper, perfume and a touch of tobacco. The balanced fruit intensity fills the mouth with flavors of casis, ripe raspberry and a touch of black tea. Moderate tannins have softened and are indicative of the future of this wonderful wine.
The 2016 Peregrine Pinot Noir is our first bottling of the wine since 2009, ten years ago! Typical of wines from Santa Rita Hills, it displays lovely dark briary fruit and a lush mouthfeel with slightly chewy tannins that are persistent thru the finish. The aromatics express notes of raspberry truffles and liquorice that intermingles with a touch of cedar. The wine’s herbal flavors of sage and eucalyptus harmonize with blackberry thru the long lived finish.
Having been raised in Columbia, Illinois, a small farming community just outside St. Louis, Richard and Roger Roessler had fond memories of the area and the “Red Birds” that were so popular. When the opportunity arose to produce a Pinot Noir that expressed the bright red fruit and lovely aromatics, the perfect name seemed to be “Red Birds”! - Roger Roessler, Founder
Owned and farmed by our old friend and long-time Roessler Lover, Mike Cooper, the Bogey is a rustic, ripe and lovely mountain grown Pinot Noir. With its southern exposure, affording views all the way to the Bay Bridge, cool winds come off the San Pablo Bay and make for extra hang-time and gentle slow flavor development.
Right out of the glass, the essence of crushed rose petal intermingles with a slight hint of mint and black berry. The flavors are iron, gravel and sweet black plum. The wine has a great, crisp acidity that ties the whole package together.
Originally thought to be too cold for Pinot Noir, this far deep-end Vineyard at the North Western boarder of the Anderson Valley really is pushing the limits of where our favorite grape will grow. This cold site requires excruciating attention to ensure even and slow ripening while keeping the elements at bay. The result? Nothing less than perfect: it’s beautiful and light Pinot Noir containing more depth than 99% of other Northern California Pinots. A light anise flavor compliments the earthy red fruit flavors that highlight this wine.
