2019 Roserock (Drouhin Oregon) Zéphirine Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir 750ml

SKU #5065203
Winery Notes- Our Zéphirine Pinot Noir is a barrel selection cuvée from the Roserock vineyard, and is a reference expression of the site. Zéphirine conveys purity and beauty, reflects winemaker Véronique Boss-Drouhin’s dedication to elegance and finesse, and will age meaningfully for years to come. The name refers to the Zéphirine Drouhin variety of climbing rose, which is known for its fragrance and beauty. 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.

JAMES SUCKLING REVIEW: Redcurrant, sour cherry and smoke on the nose. Hibiscus, too. Medium-bodied with fine tannins and lively acidity. Vibrant and juicy on the palate with a bright core of redcurrants and dried herbs. Layered and balanced, with a long, savory finish. Very vertical and deep.
ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: The 2019 Pinot Noir Zéphirine is so expressive this vintage! Matured for 14 months in 20% new oak, it has a pure fragrance of blueberries and lilac, aniseed and earth, gaining aromatic nuance and depth with time in the glass. Medium-bodied, the palate begins with bursts of acidity and a flourish of spices that glide seamlessly through the mouth for an incredibly persistent, floral finish.
WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW: 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.
