Oregon wine is in its heyday right now, garnering unprecedented critical acclaim from every major wine critic. The newest super-hot review -- 98 points for Drouhin Roserock's Zephirine Pinot noir 2015 -- comes from from James Suckling, former senior editor at Wine Spectator and now, critic at large.
After many (many) years fighting for respect, we're fine spending a few moments basking in the glorious attention and press. Alright, those moments are over -- back to work selling wines we love!
98 points, Top 100 Wines of 2017, James Suckling:"Incredible aromas of chamomile, hibiscus, fruit tea, lavender, dried strawberries, cherries, lemons and light white chocolate. Medium-bodied but with crazily formed tannins that are like velvety strings and are surrounded by vivacious acidity. A phenomenal, awe-inspiring finish. An indisputably unique wine. Drink from 2020."
Evesham is another recent recipient of phenomenal press, andthis wine rocks!
96 points PinotFile:"Oh, my God!' aromas of fresh cherry, exotic spices including clove and allspice, fertile earth and a hint of gingerbread. The flat-out delicious red cherry core is in sync with a lovely Wassail spice accent. Seamlessly composed in a mid weight style, with welcome vibrancy and a lasting echo of scent and fruit on the finish. I especially liked this wine for its uniqueness. A wine-gasm that is a must for Pinot lovers."
It's not just Pinot noir that's impressing critics. Check out Roserock's super Chardonnay:
$29.65 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($32.95 regular)
94 points Vinous:"Intense, mineral-inflected orchard and pit fruit, lavender and buttered toast aromas are complicated by oyster shell, fennel and vanilla nuances. Concentrated yet nervy and light on its feet, offering palate-staining, oak-kissed pear nectar, Meyer lemon and candied ginger flavors underscored by a vein of smoky minerality. Shows superb energy and power on the floral-tinged finish, which hangs on with serious, mineral-driven tenacity." - Josh Raynolds
