Pale to medium ruby-purple, the 2017 Pinot Noir opens with gobs of violet, blueberry coulis, boysenberry preserves, spiced cranberry sauce, stones, red currant jelly and an earthy undercurrentâ€”so layered! The light to medium-bodied palate is silky and spicy, gaining intensity in the mouth, with a grainy frame, seamless freshness and a long, spicy finish. WA
The 2017 Roserock Pinot Noir shows what is possible from this beautiful vineyard. The color is characteristically darker than what I see in the Dundee Hills, but not inky. The nose is charming and expresses the coolness compared to prior years. On the palate, I taste pomegranate, black cherry, and a touch of berry confiture. The site is always capable of elegance, which shows itself in layers, structure, and balance. We can drink this young, but it should age very nicely for 6-10 years. Winemaker.
