Edward Sellers Paso Robles Blanc du Rhone White Blend – 2006 – 8.8 – James Meléndez / James the Wine Guy

A well crafted bottle of white Rhone varietals – 46% Marsanne, 27% Viognier, 15% Roussanne & 12% Grenache Blanc; a very interesting blend—a delicious white wine; complex body: bold, soft and elegant; think smoke, spice, floral petals in a stream, passion fruit, baking spices. A very lovely wine.

Edward Sellers Selectionne Paso Robles Syrah- 2005 – 9.1 – James Meléndez / James the Wine Guy

I recently tried several Edward Sellers wines. All of his wins are from Paso Robles. Paso wines are shining quite well these days. Elegant, rich, compelling. The Syrah was outstanding; this was a complex wine—each phase of tasting from beginning to finish had a continuous development; a crescendo. The wine begins with Blackberry coulis and glides to Oaxacan cooking spices, chocolate and finishes with Black Trumpet mushroom.

Wellington Estate Sonoma Valley Marsanne – 2006 – 8.7 – James Meléndez / James the Wine Guy

This wine is a nice bookend to Wellington’s other white Rhone varietal; grass, pale yellow, a slight scent of exotic flower.

Wellington Sonoma Valley Roussanne –2005 – 8.9 – James Meléndez / James the Wine Guy

Dry, beautifulacid and balanced by spice. Roussanne is a most undervalued white wine—this Rhone varietal is sophisticated, romantic. This wine presents with Kaffir lime, Meyer lemon zest, white peach and passion fruit.

Page Mill Late Harvest Estrella Pinot Blanc – 2004-5 – 8.5 – James Meléndez / James the Wine Guy

The grape is good as a starter wine but this late harvest was as successful as it could have been; this is a very high alcohol content wine—this tends to give a lot of heat and reduce the sweet. This wine gives Braeburn apple, toast and honey comb.
