2018 Roserock by Drouhin Oregon Pinot Noir Eola-Amity Hills
Winemaker Notes: The 2018 Roserock Pinot Noir is a lively, energetic expression of both the vintage and the Eola Hills. The color is a striking light garnet, darkening at the core. On the nose, I find black currant and ripe plum, followed by crushed red flowers and clove. The palate opens with intense cherry and cranberry, mixed with a hint of allspice and light notes of oak. The tannins are dusty yet elegant, blending beautifully with the fresh and bright acidity. Texture, balance, and length are all impeccable, making for a pretty wine that drinks well now but should age very nicely for 6-8 years and beyond.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "Medium ruby, the 2018 Pinot Noir opens to delicate but layered, spicy raspberries and rhubarb with uplifted citrus and floral notes. Medium-bodied, the palate offers a ripe, seamlessly fresh frame with layered, spicy fruits and a long, uplifted finish."
James Suckling - "A beautifully floral edge to the nose here with attractive aromas of fresh, sliced strawberries and cherries, as well as sweet-spiced blueberry pastry. The palate has very elegantly stated tannins and fine, fresh-strawberry and red-cherry flavors. So balanced. Drink or hold."
Wilfred Wong - "The 2018 Roserock by Drouhin Oregon Eola-Amity Hills Oregon Pinot Noir excels in its boundless richness, yet it stays finely balanced. This wine brings to the fore attractive aromas and flavors of dried fruit and earth. Pair it with a well-seasoned, grilled leg of lamb."
