About The Wine
Our Tower 15, 2017 Roussanne can be characterized by bright floral aromas with a balance of stone fruit, nuts, baked bread and spices. We source our grapes for this vintage from Camp 4 Vineyard, owned by the Chumash Tribe, where they grow Rhône and select Bordeaux varietals. This wine is barrel-fermented and barrel-aged using only neutral French oak barrels. The majority of our Roussanne is added to our 'White Cap' blend, leaving only a limited amount for this single varietal bottling.
The Santa Ynez Valley is a long, east-west corridor, with very cool temperatures on the coast that become progressively warmer inland. Consequently, several varietals do well, from Pinot Noir in the west to Cabernet, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc in the east. Rhone varietals such as Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre, Roussanne, and Viognier also thrive in the Santa Ynez.
