The Roserock Pinot Noir shows what is possible from this beautiful vineyard. The color is characteristically darker than what I see in the Dundee Hills, but not inky. The nose is charming, and expresses the coolness compared to prior years. On the palate, I taste pomegranate, black cherry and a touch of berry confiture. The site is always capable of elegance, which shows itself in layers, structure and balance. We can drink this young, but it should age very nicely for 6-10 years.
Wine Enthusiast 92 - Supple and sexy, this is anchored in purple and black fruits, accented with a wash of coffee liqueur. Further barrel-related flavors bring malted milk candy into the mix, yet the wine remains balanced and beautifully integrated, and none of the expressive flavors seem overdone.
