Wine Review: Cline 2010 Marsanne Roussanne

The wine is a straw color. This wine is a blend of Marsanne (71%) and Roussanne (29%). This is a very aromatic and lush wine. The nose has aromas of tropical fruit, peaches, apricots, and citrus. The palate mirrors the nose with an addition of a hint of honey and lavender (the floral essence). This wine has a lush mouthfeel and is great to sip alone or be paired with seafood, roat chicken that has been sprinkled with Herbes de Provence due to the lavender notes in the wine. I would also pair this with a pork loin rubbed in herbs like rosemary and thyme and bruschetta topped with apricot jam, fresh goat cheese and proscuitto. Note:  This wine was a sample provided by Cline Cellars SRP $20.00
