2016 Drouhin RoseRock Zephirine Eola-Amity Hills Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

14.1% alc., $52. A LIVE certified sustainable vineyard with volcanic soils. A barrel selection by winemaker Veronique Drouhin. The name refers to Zephirine Drouhin variety of climbing rose known for its fragrance and beauty. · Moderately dark garnet color in the glass. The wine is very ripe fruited with aromas and flavors reflecting this. The nose offers scents of boysenberry, plum and vanilla. Plump boysenberry and blackberry fruits are composed in a mid weight plus style and accented with benevolent tannins in the background. Intensely fruity and somewhat sweet with noticeable oak-driven vanilla and cigar notes. Honestly, this wine reminded me of Meomi Pinot Noir. This wine is very highly rated in the wine press so what do I know? Score: 92. Reviewed July 8, 2019 ARTICLE »
