Walla Walla Valley designated
white wines are a rarity. This one
brings aromas of apple skin and pear, showing
a very clean profile that leads to dry creamyfeeling
fruit flavors. It’s capped off by a warm
finish, speckled with barrel accents. Overall, it
provides a lot of intrigue. —S.S.

2014 Eternal Wines ‘Patience’ Roussanne- Sourced from the Walla Walla Valley and aged on French oak for two years, this bright wine begins with aromatics reminsicent of lemongrasss, orange rind, ripe pear and honeydew melon. On the palate this is expanded to flavors of red delicious apple, ripe pear, vanilla and a lingering, 30 plus second cream finish. This is lovely and shows nice depth on the mid-palate while maintaining nice balance considering this hot vintasge. Drink 2017-2023- 90 Pts WA Wine Blog
