Truchard Carneros Napa Valley Roussanne, $23.00, 88 points, bought at the Dover Wine Co.
The wine was quite clear in color with golden notes.
Aromatic tropical fruit and lychee made for a pleasant nose.
The medium body carried good acidity and flavors reflective of its aromatics with pineapple dominant, and made for a refreshing hot (oppressive) summer's afternoon thirst quencher.
Finished with some brute force tasted something like burnt butterscotch, herbal tea, and a blend of citrus; this wasn't my usual libation, but different and interesting.
The Truchard Carneros Napa Valley Roussanne was a bit pricey, but the excursion prepared me for future reference.
