Roserock Zephirine Pinot Noir 2019
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
The 2019 Zéphirine brings new ideas to mind. The color flashes in the glass like the gemstone red apatite, or maybe even the Triumph Ronaldo variety of tulip when in full bloom. The nose is alluring like blackberry bramble and bilberry and eventually folds into white pepper and stone. These deep, beautifully defined aromatics set the stage for a complex and layered explosion of flavors, full of deft balance and precision. Silky smooth, with a poised structure, this is an excellent selection for long-term aging.
A dynamic wine, impeccably structured and fleshy in texture, unfurling with raspberry, tart blueberry, stony minerals plus clove and other dusky spices. Finishes with snappy acidity and well-framed tannins. Drink now through 2030. 1,737 cases made.
