Review:

The most distinct of the new Owen Roe Pinots is also our favorite. The nose is delightfully purple - crushed purple berries and flowers - that leads into a beautifully balanced array of dark raspberry and blackberry, with great weight and juiciness. The finish is lively, adding lip-smacking black cherry. Highly recommended. - Marcus

The mouthwatering aromas of chocolate-covered cherries, cigar box and tobacco are nicely structured with layers of raspberry compote, cherry, rhubarb pie and mocha. The finish is full and voluptuous with flavors of cocoa powder and lush tannins. - David O'Reilly

2011 Vintage

The 2011 vintages has bright aromas of raspberry, black cherry and toasty oak are enhanced with beautiful Pommard characteristics of cinnamon, dark cocoa nibs and coffee. These spicy notes lead to an elegant, mouthcoating finish. Drink now through 2021+. - David O'Reilly

13% alcohol, 76% Pommard, 18% Wadenswil, and 6% Dijon clone Pinot noir.

The Owen Roe Eola Amity Pinot noir is nicknamed "Sojourner" for the vineyard in the Eola Amity hills. This is a single vineyard wine, the first vintage in which Owen Roe's Winemaker David O'Reilly chose to work exclusively with one vineyard. Sojourner Vineyard, located near Rickreal south of Salem, Oregon has 14.73 acres in two blocks planted to Pinot noir. The vineyard is owned by Denny Peseau.

2007 Vintage Tasting Notes

This wine is made in a hedonistic, over-the-top style more typical of cult California Pinots than of Oregon's more structured offerings. It is fleshy, weighty and saturated with berry and cherry cobbler flavors, accented by sweet pie spice, vanilla bean, and mocha toast. velvety and broad, it finishes long and sweet. BIG.

International Wine Cellar says: 90 points -- Saturated red. Spicy red currant, cherry and pomegranate aromas are complemented by baking spices and mocha. Fleshy red berry and cherry compote flavors offer impressive depth, turning sweeter with air. A weighty style, with abroad, velvety texture and a long, sweet finish. This is bound to rile up fans of graceful pinot noir. "
