Roserock is a new, exciting Oregon Pinot made by the Drouhin family at their Oregon estate. The wine is made from a blend of vineyards including Roserock Vineyard at the southern tip of the Eola-Amity Hills in the Willamette Valley. Ancient volcanic soils, an ideal elevation range and the unique cooling effect of the Van Duzer corridor produce classic cool-climate Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Roserock is LIVE-certified sustainable made from a selection of the estate’s 35 blocks, which are handpicked, sorted and individually fermented. While Pinot Noirs from the Eola-Amity Hills are typically known for their structure and power, Véronique Drouhin emphasizes Roserock’s elegant and refined qualities, making for a delicious and ageworthy cuvée.
2014 is alrconsidered a classic Oregon vintage. A long, warm growing season and a relaxed, bountiful harvest has provided Pinot Noir with lovely color, beautiful fruit-forward character, excellent balance and the structure to age well. It is a perfect way to debut Roserock. The 2014 Roserock has a lovely, deep red color. The nose is floral, spicy and beautiful, with an intense, savory, character. On the palate, there are notes of dark berry preserves, a touch of caramel, black cherry, dried flowers, and tilled earth. There is clear structure and balance, with good mouth weight and a long finish. Winemaker Véronique Drouhin expects that we will be enjoying this wine for 7-10 years, or more, but it is open and enjoyable right now.

Wine AdvocateThe 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.

Wine SpectatorBroad and expressive, with cherry and pomegranate flavors, picking up pear and floral notes as the finish lingers against grippy tannins. Best from 2017 through 2024. 12,762 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastA new effort from DDO, this drops Domaine Drouhin from the name, and puts the vineyard name front and center. It's young and well-crafted, with strawberry and cherry fruit. The potential is evident for an impressive site once the vines get some age under them.
