(aged for 18 months in French oak barrels, 35% of them new) Brilliant red. A suave, expansive bouquet evokes fresh red berries, potpourri, incense and smoky minerals. Sappy, alluringly sweet and light on its feet, offering intense raspberry, cherry and floral pastille flavors that are braced by a suggestion of bitter blood orange. Plays power off delicacy with a sure hand, showing no excess weight but displaying abundant red fruit character. Fine-grained tannins lend shape to a strikingly long, smooth finish that leaves a sexy rose pastille note behind.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2015 Pinot Noir Rosemary's Vineyard offers up expressive black cherries, mulberries and black raspberry notes with suggestions of violets, baking spices, fertile loam and lavender. Medium-bodied, with a firm backbone of fine-grained tannins and well-integrated freshness, it gives plenty of earthy layers and great length.
With an exquisite boysenberry hue, the 2015 vintage of Rosemary’s Vineyard Pinot Noir offers aromas of cherry, plum, and jasmine. Soft mineral nuances of river rock on the palate are complemented by notes of tart blackberry and candied cherry. Try this well-balanced and structured pinot noir with pork chops or pan roasted duck with a balsamic reduction.
