Roserock Pinot Noir 2014
by Domaine Drouhin, Oregon
Eola-Amity Hills, Willamette Valley, OR
91 pts. Robert Parker:
Oregon's well-known and highly respected Drouhin family purchased the 279-acre Roserock vineyard in 2013. "We knew the Eola-Amity Hills AVA makes delicious wines and knew the vineyard was well-planted, had high quality and produced excellent wines," said Veronique Drouhin. "We were lucky we were chosen as the buyers."
Winemaker Véronique Drouhin-Boss represents the fourth generation from this venerable wine family of France, but it is here in Oregon that Véronique’s skills and passion are bringing forth some of the most sublime Pinot Noir and Chardonnay produced anywhere. Véronique has lovingly crafted every drop of wine produced at Domaine Drouhin since the first vintage in 1988 and is widely recognized for her experience, superb palate and joyful approach to wine and life. These qualities are easily recognizable in her wines.
Roserock is an extraordinary vineyard at the southern tip of the Eola-Amity Hills, in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Ancient volcanic soils, an ideal elevation range and the unique cooling effect of the Van Duzer corridor produce classic cool-climate Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Roserock is LIVE-certified sustainable.
Roserock Pinot Noir is a cuvée selection from the estate’s 35 blocks, which are handpicked, sorted and individually fermented. While Pinot Noirs from the Eola-Amity Hills are typically known for their structure and power, Véronique Drouhin emphasizes Roserock’s elegant and refined qualities, making for a delicious and ageworthy cuvée.
2014 is already considered a classic Oregon vintage. A long, warm growing season and a relaxed, bountiful harvest has given us Pinot Noir with lovely color, beautiful fruit-forward character, excellent balance and the structure to age well. It is a perfect way to debut Roserock.
Véronique Drouhin's Tasting Notes:
Our 2014 Roserock Pinot Noir has a lovely, deep red color. The nose is floral, spicy and beautiful, with an intense, savory, character. On the palate, there are notes of dark berry preserves, a touch of caramel, black cherry, dried flowers, and tilled earth. There is clear structure and balance, with good mouth weight and a long finish. I expect that we will be enjoying this wine for 7-10 years, or more, but it offers a lot now.
