Review of Eric Ross, 2008 Marsanne-Roussanne, Russian River Valley, Saralee’s Vineyard

“Beauty Bottle”

A character of elegance and excellence resides in this bottle. Nutty apricot and a peachy peace with a honey-honed finish. Crisp, flirtatious, and fun. Wonderfully blended and balanced white. Sip on a hot day, or into night. Her character reminds me of a visually stunning belle from the South, or Manhattan, or Paris. She walks into the cotillion, or Parisian jazz cafe and all stay agape. Flavorful, with each sip. Even for those who don’t like whites, this might ignite inner-lights. Would pair, with immaculate brilliance I’m sure, with a light pasta dish, like Mom’s linguini and clams, or a crab casserole, a light chicken plate, anything mild and with calm spice, herbs. Can see myself, personally, sipping this on a balcony, right when the sun is punching-out, angling the class to my lips with tempered pace. This bottle, a find! No, a true treasure! Go get a bottle, or 12, be with Beauty.
