2015 Drouhin Oregon Roserock

Zéphirine Pinot Noir

Roserock is an extraordinary vineyard at the southern tip of the Eola-Amity Hills, in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Ancient volcanic soils, an ideal elevation range and the unique cooling effect of the Van Duzer corridor produce classic cool-climate Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Roserock is LIVE-certified sustainable

About Our Zéphirine Pinot Noir

Our Zéphirine Pinot Noir is a barrel selection cuvée from the Roserock vineyard, and is a reference

expression of the site. Zéphirine conveys purity and beauty, reflects winemaker Véronique Drouhin’s

dedication to elegance and finesse, and will age

meaningfully for years to come. The name refers to the Zéphirine Drouhin variety of climbing rose, which is known for its fragrance and beauty.

The 2015 Vintage

The warm, long growing season of 2015 brought us a second straight harvest of

exceptional quality. Looking back, a warmer than average winter led to an early

budbreak and nearly six months of charmed growing conditions. Just before harvest, the vineyards were able to enjoy some needed rain, but the skies were largely clear.

As temperatures cooled, we were offered a welcome opportunity to pick as each block reached its perfect moment. Ripeness and flavor found their natural balance providing a second stunning vintage.

Véronique’s Tasting Notes

The 2015 Zéphirine convinces you immediately with its dark ruby color and abundant aromatics.

Violets, fresh strawberries, cacao, cannelle and a touch of vanilla essence emerge from of the glass. Zéphirine has impressive complexity, defined structure and super length. I trust this wine can be

enjoyed for at least 7-10 years, if not more
