This is the first bottlings from Domaine Drouhin’s new acquisition, the Roserock Vineyard – and it’s a beauty! Shimmering, vibrant red fruits and scintillating acidity create an explosive palate experience. The wine is very exciting and vigorous, approachable now, and shows future potential as well. This is a bit of a stylistic shift for Drouhin, and is actually somewhat reminiscent of their inaugural ’88. Given how tasty this is, fans should take advantage of what may well be introductory pricing on this winner.

Aptly named, Drouhin's Rose Rock Pinot Noir hails from a parcel seated at the southern tip of the Eola-Amity Hills, the grapes harvested from this site are grown in ancient volcanic soils and benefit from the cooling Van Duzer winds. Blithe floral notes; a bouquet of wild roses, lavender, lilac, dust, anise, spice, and crushed stones lead into a wine with arching acidity that spreads languidly across the palate amidst black fruit notes, fine tannins, high-toned cranberries and toast. 14.1% ABV

Solid, great floral essence, has a lot of rose petals, dried lavender, mineral essence of river stones, a bit of burn, affirms it's a 14%+ Pinot, and some spice. Palate is silky, red fruit driven with a bit of rhubarb pie sitting in there. Totally worth the money, at around $34-36. Good value Pinot.

Floral and spicy nose with hints of barnyard, forest floor. French oak but just 20% new so it's subtle. On the palate it's cherry au poirve.

Nose: blood orange, cranberry, dried leaves, clove, rose petal, and stems. Nose confirms the palate. Med acid, velvety tannins. Definitely has a few more years under its belt.

Eola-Amity, firm tannins, a bit rustic in the best kind of way. better with decanting or on day 2

Drouhin Oregon Roserock is the newest chapter in the Drouhin story, extending from Burgundy's Cote d’Or and Chablis, to the Dundee Hills of Oregon, and now Oregon's Eola-Amity Hills. Drouhin Oregon Roserock continues a four-generation story that began in 1880 when Joseph Drouhin moved from Chablis to Beaune, in the heart of Burgundy. First vintage, light red, focused fruit aromas, red fruits on the palate, zesty acidity, fine tannins good balance lingering finish. Put another in the cellar for later.
