88pointsZaca Mesa 2011 Roussanne (Santa Ynez Valley)

Brilliant gold in color, this wine by Santa Barbara's pioneering Rhône house shows pressed white flowers, bruised apple and a touch of iodine on the nose. It's quite heavy on the viscous palate, with a sense of fish oil as well as caramelized apple, iodine, roasted almonds, singed marshmallow and dried apricot. It's a very meaty white wine.
