2023 Roussanne

Presenting the attributes of warmer harvest conditions, our 2023 Roussanne opens with aromas and flavors of Lemongrass, Granny Smith apple, nectarine, and a hint of petrichor. This wine has a voluptuous creamy texture on the palate that borders on waxy, complimented by a fresh acidity. This wine has excellent tension to accompany the round, more opulent style the warm vintage offers. Drink in the next few years to experience more of this effort’s fresh, fruity side, or cellar for 7+ years to witness its evolution.

The outstanding 2023 DeLille Cellars Roussanne is a gorgeous edition of this wine that deftly combines weight and finesse. Stored in a combination of neutral oak, concrete and stainless steel this offers bright honeysuckle on the nose alongside kiwi and brie cheese notes. The palate is soft and refined with a smooth texture and great sense of weight. Beautifully balanced, coming from the Ciel du Cheval Vineyard, this is another stunning release of this wine.

Behind the Wine

2023 Roussanne

Roussanne is one of the few noble white grapes that can retain natural acidity & crisp structure nurtured under our beloved Red Mountain sun. As a single vineyard wine from the famed Ciel du Cheval vineyard in the Red Mountain AVA, the distinctive mineral complexity is the foundation of every vintage.


Ciel du Cheval Vineyard is one of the oldest sites on Red Mountain. Here, the Roussanne grape flourishes under the intense Red Mountain sun.
