Josh Raynolds of Vinous gives a thorough analysis of the 2015 Vintage for Oregon, reporting that “Oregon Pushes the Quality Needle for Pinot.” We are very pleased that Josh gave our 2015 Roosevelt Pinot Noir top marks:
2015 ROOSEVELT PINOT NOIR – 93 POINTS
Brilliant red. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe red and blue fruits, candied flowers and incense, along with hints of cola, vanilla and smoked meat in the background. Seamless and appealingly sweet, offering concentrated black raspberry, boysenberry and lavender pastille flavors that are braced by a hint of blood orange. Shows outstanding clarity and solid thrust on the impressively long, seamless, floral- and vanilla-tinged finish, which is framed by smooth, harmonious tannins.
