James Suckling Another amazing pinot noir that shows such purity of the fruit. Blueberries, raspberries, lemons, oranges and hints of caramel. Medium to full body, an incredibly polished texture and a beautiful, exciting finish.
VinousBrilliant red. Vibrant, spice-accented red fruit liqueur, floral pastille and incense aromas, along with an intense mineral topnote. Stains the palate with sweet raspberry and spicecake flavors that show impressive depth as well as delicacy and nervy cut. Silky, seamless and precise, finishing with outstanding energy and velvety, slow-building tannins that harmonize smoothly with the deep fruit.
Wine AdvocatePale ruby-purple colored, the 2015 Roserock Pinot Noir is a little closed at this youthful stage, offering delicate red cherry and raspberry leaf notes over hints of black pepper and lavender. Medium-bodied, the palate offers firm, chewy tannins and a lively backbone to support the red berry and cedar-laced flavors, finishing long with a nice toastiness.
Wine SpectatorHarmonious and well-built, with expressive pomegranate and cherry flavors accented by bay leaf and spice notes. Drink now through 2024.
Wine EnthusiastThis new Domaine Drouhin Oregon label has increased drastically in production-a real boon for consumers, given its modest pricepoint. Still quite young, it shows tightly wound, compact cranberry, raspberry and red plum flavors, with plenty of supporting acidity. Give it ample aeration if you plan to drink it before 2020.
