Drouhin Oregon Roserock 2015 Eola–Amity Hills Zéphirine Pinot Noir
The Drouhins are clearly hitting their stride with Roserock, their new property in the South Salem Hills. The ‘15 Zéphirine, a barrel selection, is poised, with scents of caramel and dusty cherry, a whiff of pipe tobacco. Satisfying and inviting, its flavors bear an oak signature that should be familiar to Drouhin lovers, a suave, smooth persistent woody sheen on dark red-fruit flavors. It’s seamless, with the sort of balance that should guarantee a long life. (1,794 cases)review by Patrick J. Comiskey
