We tasted through the line-up of White Rose 08 Pinots twice and found the same results: Sovarae was our favorite 08 White Rose Pinot. More structured, with the same exotic aromatics as it's "bigger" siblings and beautiful density. Oh, how I wish there more than 6 bottles left...

2008 Wine Advocate - 93 points - The 2008 Pinot Noir Sovarae is sourced from two specific White Rose Vineyard blocks. Fragrant, remarkably expressive, and dense, the focus here is on succulent black fruits supported by a silky texture and lively acidity leading to a velvety finish. It, too, will benefit from 3-4 years of additional cellaring. - Jay Miller

2008 Tanzer - 92 points - Full red. Red berries and cherry on the fragrant nose, along with a complex array of floral and herbal qualities. Fleshy and nicely concentrated, with smoky blackberry and bitter cherry flavors lifted by gentle acidity. Finishes smooth and sweet, with lingering notes of licorice, Indian spices and cola. - Josh Raynolds

From the winery - The 2008 Sovarae is sourced solely from our estate vineyard. Our objective from a winemaking standpoint is to make a wine from our estate vineyard with more masculine character. We selected barrels with greater weight, structure and power. In order to achieve the desired effect, we included more barrels from the pressings.
