2012 Roots Roots Estate Vineyard Yamhill-Carlton Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.9% alc., $40. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. A cherry bombast with an explosion of fresh, fully ripened cherry goodness highlighting the nose and palate. Some elegance and modest tannins that keep the fruit in line. Assertive and showy, yet caressing in the mouth, with an intensely cherry-driven finish. You begged for more cherry and here it is. Score: 93. Reviewed July 6, 2014 WINERY » ARTICLE »

2010 Roots Estate Vineyard Yamhill-Carlton Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., 125 cases, $35. · Moderately light reddish-purple color in the glass. The aromas of black cherries and sandalwood leap from the glass. Very tasty with a moderately rich core of dark red and purple berry preserves finishing long with a good shaft of acidity and notes of cranberries and pomegranates. A generous wine that is very user-friendly. Very good. Reviewed November 24, 2012 WINERY » ARTICLE »

2007 Roots Estate Yamhill-Carlton District Pinot Noir

13.6% alc., 175 cases, $25. · Pleasing scents of, strawberries, tutti-fruity and spice. Substantial red cherry and red berry core with an underpinning of earthiness, spice and Dr. Pepper. Minimum dusty tannins make the wine very approachable now. Seems like a Yamhill-Carlton wine masquerading as a Dundee Hills wine. This wine really brings it for the price of a Jackson and is recommended. Reviewed August 5, 2009 WINERY » ARTICLE »
