The 2008 The Money Spider Roussanne is unoaked. Light gold-colored, It has an enticing bouquet of honey, candle wax, and melon aromas followed by a vibrant, ripe, smooth-textured wine with layers of flavor. Drink this outstanding effort over the next 2-3 years.”,,,

Light gold. Palish yellow. Intriguing aromas of white peach, green tea, beeswax, pear, nectarine and jasmine. Dense and powerful, but the sappy flavors of nectarine and pear skin are enlivened by tangy acidity and a stony nuance. The refreshingly dry-edged finish features very good spicy lift and a suggestion of honey.
