Chardonnay of the Week


Roar Winery is the brain child of the “other” Gary – Gary Franscioni and his wife Rosella.  Gary who also owns the GARYS’ vineyard with Gary Pisoni, planted various vineyards in 1996 (Sierra Mar, Rosella, Soberanos and Garys’).  The Franscioni family sells over 80% of its fruit to various wineries, retaining only a small amount for themselves.  That said, the Roar wines are heavily allocated and very limited.  The 2014 Santa Lucia Highlands is a blend of all the vineyards Gary owns and farms.

Winemaker Tasting Notes: “Our 2014 Chardonnay brings hints of lemon, banana, and honeysuckle to the lush, dense aromatics of ripe melon. Over time, scents of straw and graphite mingle with the fruit to draw the overall experience into a sweet, viscous minerality. The palate tends more toward more stone fruit than tropical – mainly white peach – with citrus zest, creamy oak, and crispness forming the perfect counterbalance.”
