2016 Roussanne Pure Joy on the Beach
Introducing The Artist. Barbara Lawrence was born in San Francisco and spent her early years walking the hills and beaches, exploring the parks and museums and sailing on San Francisco Bay, all the time absorbing the rich visual information which later became her paintings. Her work is characterized by rich color and sensuous paint application. The special color and light of California provide her with a never-ending source of material.
Inspiration for the Painting. "A large part of my life has to do with morning walks on the beach with my beloved dog – Jaime. And he reminds me of the importance of living in the moment." - Barbara Lawrence.
2016 Pure Joy on the Beach Sonoma County Roussanne. Roussanne is such an expressive and distinctive wine. Originally from the Northern Rhone region of France, the grape excels in cooler regions of California. Winemaker Brenda Lynch's 2016 Roussanne, her first ever, comes from the Dry Creek Valley in Sonoma County. It playfully combines bright natural acidity and uplifting floral and pear flavors with a medium full finish focused on honey richness.
