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.

Tasting notes: 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..

James Suckling (JS) : 94 Points (2014)
This is the first vintage of this wine. Shows intensity and balanced and beautiful fruit. Medium-to full-bodied, silky and beautiful. A really velvety and round texture to this.

Robert Parker (RP) : 91 Points (2014)
The 2014 Roserock Pinot Noir offers blackberry and briary scents on the nose with a touch of earthiness - well defined and quite vivacious in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with dusky blackberry and blueberry fruit. It exerts a gentle grip in the mouth and delivers white pepper sprinkled over the finish that is nicely detailed. This should drink well over the next 8-10 years and at this price, I would be loading up.

Wines & Spirits (W&S) : 90 Points (2014)
This is the first release from Drouhin’s new Roserock property in the southern Eola–Amity Hills, and its structure and tension makes it a fairly dramatic departure from the Dundee Hills. The flavors are elegant and vinous, with scents of raspberry and tree bark, its tense frame of minerality registering as textbook Eola–Amity Hills. It feels youthful; a wine to cellar and serve with roast goat.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 90 Points (2014)
Broad and expressive, with cherry and pomegranate flavors, picking up pear and floral notes as the finish lingers against grippy tannins. Best from 2017 through 2024. 12,762 cases made.
