Roar Rosella's Vineyard Pinot Noir 2009

Roar Rosella's Vineyard Pinot Noir 2009



Dark ruby in color with a deep, spicy nose of cola, earth, raspberries and lavender. On the palate there's a dense, ripe and mouthfilling texture that's filled with a variety of cherry and berry fruits. The acidity is well-balanced and lasts right through the long finish.

Wine AdvocateThe 2009 Pinot Noir Rosella's is a gorgeous, sensual wine that sweeps across the palate with layers of dark red fruit. It reveals striking inner perfume, fabulous mid-palate density and terrific overall balance. Hints of licorice and mint add depth to the delicate finish. The main clones in the Rosella's are Pisoni, Pommard 4 and 777. Roar gave the Rosella's 65% new oak. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2019.
