Roserock Zephirine Pinot Noir 2021
|United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley
Our 2021 Roserock Zéphirine Pinot Noir gets right to the point: it is a fragrant, complex, exuberant expression of our vineyard, and its potential longevity is inspiring. On the nose, black currants, violet and lavender invite exploration. On the palate, juicy blue/black notes of wild berries and subtle earthiness wrap around a touch of spice. The tannins are firm yet elegant, providing a smooth mouthfeel and a long, satisfying finish. In short, the 2021 Zéphirine is special!
Beautifully fragrant notes of cocoa-dusted raspberries and crushed blueberries with dried rose petals, sencha tea, cherry chocolate and crushed rocks. Ground spices, too. It shows both delicacy and power, with a compact and silky feeling to the tannin structure and impressive acidity which carries the freshness and tone through to the finish. Attractive tension of crunchy blue fruit and spices.
Graceful and seductive, this Pinot is seamlessly structured, with rich raspberry and blueberry flavors and forest floor and violet accents all gliding on the polished, lingering finish. Drink now through 2031. 2,002 cases made.
Beautiful blackberry and crunchy dried maple leaf aromas provide an excellent introduction to a jangly texture and flavors like tart black cherries, cranberries and a saline note similar to Marcona almonds. Balanced, with silky tannins and crisp acidity backing all of that fruit.
