Features

2007 Expression 44° Pinot Noir, Roserock Vineyard 750ml 2-Pack

Color – Saturated ruby red
Aromatics - Bright and lively red fruit aromas with a note of candied cherries and spice that follows through to the palate.
Flavors - Delicate spices, mineral and ripe raspberry balance the layers of elegant ‘sous bois’ on the mid-palate. A ribbon of mushroom and forest floor speak to a classic Burundian profile, though the core of bright red fruit is all new world.
Finish – Supple tannins, sweet fruit and spice characterize the finish.

The warm 2007 growing season at Roserock Vineyard produced pristine clusters of Pinot Noir. After de-stemming, the whole berry fruit underwent a prolonged cold soak, followed by gentle fermentation in small batches. The resulting wine demonstrated exotic primary aromas which were then enhanced by 11 months of barrel aging in French oak barrels, one third new. Reductive winemaking techniques preserved the delicacy and precision of the wine. This elegant wine is marked by a regal combination of pure fruit and sous bois flavors together with a balanced acidity and ripe, supple mouthfeel.

Roserock is perched on a ridge top towards the southern end of the Eola-Amity Hills AVA. It was designed, developed and is now farmed to produce high-end wine grapes. As part of those efforts the vineyard is farmed in accordance with the best practices laid out in Oregon’s LIVE (Low Input Viticulture and Enology) and Salmon Safe program. This is not only more environmentally responsible, but it is a valued characteristic of the vineyard since sustainable farming is increasingly being recognized as an important factor in producing high-end wine.
