Keyways Rousanne Estate Reserve 2008

“The golden moments in the stream of life rush past us and we see nothing but sand; the angels come to visit us, and we only know them when they are gone.”  — George Eliot

This wine is a golden moment.  Glorious fragrant aroma of figs, tropical fruit and honey.  With a mouth of zippy mango-tango.  Great acid balance.  Pair this with Pasta Carbonara.  You’ll be glad you did.  The acidity cuts right through the creamy sauce and bacon.

The details: 13.3% alcohol.  Cork closure.  Appellation: Temecula Valley.  A blend of 89% roussanne, 11% of the aromatic viognier. Retail $27 USD, available directly from Keyways.  This was a media sample graciously provided by the winery.

The music match is U2’s “If God Would Send His Angels” from the soundtrack from City of Angels.  Relax, unwind with music and wine, let the stream of life rush past and cherish the golden moments.
