Review:

Sexy aromas typical of White Rose Pinot noirs - floral, earth, musk - combine with bright and dark red fruits on the palate. We're really looking forward to the brilliance of White Rose Estate Pinots from the 2012 vintage.

Previous Vintage:

2010 Wine Spectator - 90 points - Light and spicy, this is aromatic with clove and mace overtones to its raspberry and lime flavors, remaining lively and persistent as the finish lingers. Drink now through 2017. - H.S.

White Rose 2010 Pinots dominated the recent Portland Monthly magazine's Top 50 Oregon Wines with the two highest scores, all from a four-judge, blind tasting. What that tells you is that their style is appealing and consistent among their line-up: complexity and delicacy, red fruit mixing with exotic spices from the winery's signature wholecluster fermentation. Taste the White Rose style for a modest price - that's what their Willamette Valley bottling is all about.

2009 Vintage Tasting Notes

2009 Wine Advocate - 90 points - The entry level 2009 Pinot Noir Willamette Valley is a six vineyard, multi-regional blend that was made with 20% whole clusters and aged for 11 months in 13% new French oak. Medium ruby red in color, it offers up an attractive perfume of spice box, red fruits, especially cherry, rose petal, and cedar. In the glass it opens to reveal a supple, savory, sweetly-fruited, concentrated wine that has excellent balance and a lengthy, pure finish. It is meant for drinking over the next 6-7 years. - Jay Miller

2008 Vintage Tasting Notes

2008 Wine Advocate - 88 points - The collection begins with the 2008 Pinot Noir Willamette Valley, a blend of four vineyards. It gives up a pleasing perfume of cedar, rose petal, spice box, cherry, and raspberry leading to a dense, savory, well-balanced wine with excellent volume and enough ripe tannin to evolve for 1-2 years. It can be enjoyed now through 2018. - Jay Miller

From the winery - Our Willamette Valley pinot noir is a wine that shows forward, fruit-driven characteristics offering more generous flavors in their youth. This cuvee blends barrels from 3 different sub-appellations of the Willamette Valley: 4 different vineyards, 9 different vineyard blocks and 6 different clones. The resulting wine offers fleshy dark fruit character, complimentary spices, concentrated aromatics and a velvety soft palate. This is a wine that is both showy and enjoyable upon release, while possessing enough acidity and structure to reward cellaring.
