Roserock Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir 2014 750mL 94 Points-James Suckling, 91 Points-Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
The Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir cuvee is drawn from Roserock's 35 estate Pinot Noir blocks. It clearly conveys winemaker Veronique Drouhin's dedication to elegance and finesse, and continues a long tradition of producing fine wines.
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.
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.

I guess it was just a matter of time when Domaine Drouhin Oregon would extend their turf and produce wines from other parts of the Oregon countryside. It must be a Burgundy think: always searching for fine Pinot Noir sites. The nifty and elegant 2014 Roserock is a Pinot Noir that simply expresses the pure varietal and the sanctity of the site. Pair this one with lightly grilled salmon. Light to medium garnet color; lively red fruit aroma, focused and uncluttered; medium bodied, zesty on the palate, moderate tannins; dry, fine acidity, well balanced; pristine red fruit flavors, with a note of savor; crisp aftertaste (Tasted: March 3, 2016, San Francisco, CA USA)
