Roar Rosella's Vineyard Pinot Noir 2018
|Region||California, Central Coast, Santa Lucia Highlands|
Perfumed and floral, with blackberry, cherry, and vanilla aromas, this wine from our home ranch delivers abundant fruit balanced by savory leather and dried herbs. Dense boysenberry and raspberry anchor a velvety palate and a long, seamless finish laced with oregano, dusty earth, and rose petals.
From one of the cooler sites they work with, the 2018 Pinot Noir Rosella's Vineyard shines for its vibrant, pure yet complex style. Giving up lots of mulberry and black cherry fruit as well ample sappy flower and spice notes, this beauty is medium to full-bodied, has a juicy, elegant texture, perfectly integrated acidity, and a great finish. Drink it over the coming decade as well.
Snappy aromas of candied raspberry, lively hibiscus, subtle rose petal and star anise make for a very fresh and inviting nose on this bottling. The palate's baked raspberry and red-cherry flavors are cut by orange peel and licorice, making for a hedonistically complex sip.
Refined, layered and expressive, with rich, loamy accents to the dried dark fruit and cooking spice flavors. Cedary hints show on the finish, revealing touches of cocoa and cream. Drink now through 2025. 742 cases made.
