Our 2012 Roosevelt Pinot Noir received an outstanding 95 Points, and chosen as a “Cellar Selection” from Wine Enthusiast Magazine, February, 2015.

“A star even among a stellar group of 2012 releases from Elk Cove, this 20-year-old vineyard really delivers the goods. Time has tempered the herbal aromatics, giving this rich, ripe effort a subtle subtext of olive and sage. Black cherry, dark chocolate and a dusty, mocha finish with a hint of habanero pepper bring this wine together beautifully. Delicious already, it should continue to improve 2025-2030. Cellar Selection.” –P.G.

“Scents of beef consommé and smoke suggest a fairly oaky profile, but there’s ample fruit to carry it. After a day of air, this Oregon wine resembles the supple, open richness of a pinot from the Russian River. For grilled pacific salmon.” – Patrick J. Comiskey, Wine & Spirits Magazine (August, 2013)

1998 Roosevelt Pinot Noir:

91 Points “A silky-textured beauty with pretty flavors of dark berry, carmel and olive that remain focused as the wine firms up on the finish.” (September 1, 2000)

2000 Roosevelt Pinot Noir:

89 Points “A distinctive wine, tasting of wild berries and herbs. Not a typical Pinot Noir, but effusive and intense on the open-grained finish. Drink now through 2005.”

2003 Roosevelt Pinot Noir:

91 Points “Seamless, harmonious, with pure plum and blueberry fruit wrapped in a veil of fine tannins, shaded beautifully with hints of apricot, cream and dusky spice. This one exudes class. Best from 2007 through 2015.” (December 15, 2005)

2004 Roosevelt Pinot Noir:

91 Points “Velvety, round and generous with its red plum, black currant and creamy spice flavors. A beautifully built, refined Pinot that lasts and lasts on the pointed, focused finish. Best from 2008 through 2014.” (November 30, 2006)
