A juicy and intense wine with with lots of plum, chocolate and cedar undertones. Full-bodied and velvety. Pretty, gorgeous, racy and just so fine. Love the fruit and texture. Drink now.

The inaugural release of the cuvée Zéphirine from DDO’s new Roserock Estate was utterly stunning when first released a year ago, and nothing has changed to dissuade me that this is destined for a very long and very beautiful evolution in bottle. The superbly perfumed bouquet jumps from the glass in a blend of red plums, cherries, cocoa powder, a complex base of soil tones, gentle smokiness and a deft framing of nutty new wood. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, complex and beautifully balanced, with excellent depth at the core, fine soil signature, suave, seamless tannins and a long, tangy and impeccably focused finish. The cooler influence of the Van Duzer Corridor is very much apparent in this bottling, which is sleek and vibrant out of the blocks- no easy task in the very warm growing season of 2014! This will be a landmark bottling from the Drouhin family in Oregon!

This reserve-level wine from the Roserock vineyard, Domaine Drouhin's recent Eola-Amity Hills planting, is compelling. Dense and fragrant, it boasts a beguiling mix of rose, cocoa powder and Asian spice, like a magic carpet ride of flavor. A finishing note of chocolate-covered orange peel is the pièce de résistance.

Pale to medium ruby-purple, the 2014 Roserock Zéphirine Pinot Noir has intense bay leaves, fresh cranberries and rhubarb notes on the nose with underlying garrigue, game and forest floor hints. Medium-bodied and sporting a solid frame of chewy tannins, it offers a great core of herb-laced earthy flavors and a long finish. - Lisa Perrotti Brown

Ripe red and blue fruits, candied flowers, incense and a hint of licorice on the deeply perfumed nose. A spine of juicy acidity provides lift and structure to sweet raspberry and boysenberry flavors that open up slowly on the back half. Delivers a suave blend of power and finesse and finishes impressively long, showing resonating red fruit character and sneaky, harmonious tannins. - Josh Raynolds

Here the nose is quite similar to the straight Roserock but with more evident floral elements. The appealingly textured medium-bodied flavors exhibit good punch and reasonably good detail as well while displaying a lovely natural sweetness on the dusty, balanced and solidly complex finish. This is sufficiently tightly wound to warrant holding it for 6 to 8 years first and about the only nit is a hint of backend warmth.

(17/20) Bright, intense and layered nose. Great energy with proper fruit yet structure. So zesty.
