The Drouhin Oregon Roserock Pinot Noir comes from the southern tip of the Eola-Amity Hills in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. The soils of the Roserock vineyard are composed of ancient volcanic soils at an ideal elevation range producing classical cool-climate Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The Drouhin Oregon Roserock Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir, certified sustainable, displays a lovely deep red color in the glass with a nose bursting of floral, spicy and savory character. On the palate there are notes of dark berries, black cherry, dried flowers and a hint of earth. There is a clear structure and balance with good weight and long finish. A lovely refined Pinot Noir that is delicious now but also age worthy.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2014 Roserock Pinot Noir has a pale to medium ruby-purple color and nose of garrigue, bay leaves and underbrush over a core of Bing cherries and cranberries. Medium-bodied, with a taut frame of chewy tannins and a racy backbone, it has a lovely earthy/herbal lift in the mouth, continuing long into the finish.
