2014 is already considered a classic Oregon vintage. A long, warm growing season and a relaxed,
bountiful harvest has given us Pinot Noir with lovely color, beautiful fruit-forward character, excellent
balance and the structure to age well. It is a perfect way to debut Roserock.
Zéphirine has a deep, rosewood color. On the nose, there is clear energy, and layers upon layers of
violets, delicate roses, small berries and brush. On the palate, there is a wealth of blue and black fruit flavors balanced
by excellent structure and fine tannins. As a whole, Zéphirine exudes complexity and refinement, and leads to
a very long, satisfying finish. It will be lovely to experience as it ages over the next 8-10 years or more.
