    Bright, focused, and clean, this is a Pinot Noir bringing all the best Oregon has to offer along with a clear French sensibility to the wine making. Expected or not, the cultural marriage results in a phenomenal bottle of juice that's about as easy to drink as any wine on the shelf. Not a fruit bomb in the slightest, there is a touch of strawberry and cherry on the top diving down into a velvety-smooth spiced finish that wraps up and through the palate, refreshing in its youth. This wine will age better than most at the price point, not that I'll be able to stop myself from opening it soon and often.

    I've tasted this wine on several occasions and it never disappoints. It's a beautifully, balanced, authentic expression of Williamette Pinot Noir. The Roserock property combines some of the maturest vines in the region with Drouhin's four generations of grape growing and wine making experience dating back to 1880 when the family domain was founded in Burgundy. It's a mid weight style of Pinot Noir that really captures the seductive side of the varietal. Floral notes lead into wild berries, woodsy spices, underbrush, dried leaves and subtle lavender. The silky, polished texture is just as seductive as the nose. Mouth filling and rich without any over ripeness or unwanted extraction. Very pure and fluid on the palate, with a long layered finish. An exceptional value given the quality and pedigree.

    This is as inviting a Pinot as I have tasted recently. Holding perfumed raspberry fruit intermixed with pretty baking spices, the profile is more cool climate. The palate is round and supple though. No harshness of any kind, this is absolutely lovely making a great sipper or food pairing. I love it with some grilled salmon and roasted root vegetables.

    French soul, Oregon soil. The Drouhin family of Burgundy have done it again. Their Rose Rock estate in the Eola-Amity Hills region produces wines of exception finesse and style. I’ve long been a fan of their more famous Dundee Hills Pinot Noirs but this wine really caught my attention. You can sense the classic Oregon terroir driven by ancient volcanic soils. But the elegance and silkiness of the wine is a direct result of the Burgundian influence. Dark berry preserves, dried flowers, and a touch of wood spice combine to make this one of the more compelling Pinot Noirs in the attractive price range.

    There is absolutely nothing to fault in this fine. It has a lovely elegance and perfect balance of fruit and fine tannin. I've always been a fan of the Drouhin wines from Burgundy and Oregon, but I may be even more inclined to pick up a Roserock on a daily basis, since it has all the phenomenal qualities of it's big brothers, but at a more attractive everyday price.

    Drouhin's second Williamette Valley label is notable not only for doubling down on their investment in making great Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in Oregon, but also in showing how distinctive the wines are in Dundee vs the Eola Amity Hills further south in the valley. Their 2015 Pinot Noir shows the warmth of the vintage, along with a bright and high toned quality all its own. Plum and berry confit blend with freshly picked wild berry flavors on this delicious Pinot - drink now or over the next 5-7 years.

    I became a big fan of these Roserock wines when I tasted their previous releases and this 2015 did not disappoint. Roserock is a special site on the southern tip of Eola-Amity Hills in the Willamette Valley dominated by ancient volcanic soils. This wine is beautifully balanced with floral, spice, lifted dark berries and a medium tannic structure. I highly suggest this to all the Oregon Pinot fans out there!
