2004 Roar "Rosella's Vineyard" Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir

SKU #1021307 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Wow! I was blown away by these Pinot Noirs from Roar. They all reveal unbelievable complexity, richness, and the extraordinary potential that exists in the Santa Lucia Highlands for this varietal. The 2004 Pinot Noir Rosella’s Vineyard reminds me of a beautifully ripe top vintage of grand cru Corton from the Cotes de Beaune. Sweet black cherry fruit intermixed with notions of pomegranate, raspberry, and strawberry cascade from the glass of this medium ruby-colored Pinot. A superb texture, a broad, expansive mouthfeel, silky tannin, and abundant fruit and glycerin result in a gorgeous wine. Its deceptively light color belies the riches that follow for both the olfactory senses and the palate. Inner quote mark (8/2006)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Distinctive for its mix of herb, dried cherry and raspberry fruit, along with its supple texture and rich, loamy earthiness. It also wins points for its elegance and understated flavors, which soothe the palate. Inner quote mark (6/2006)

K&L Notes

Quickly becoming a cult classic, this is a stupendously impressive Pinot now from the increasingly hot Santa Lucia Highlands AVA. Take a bottle to your next dinner party, and you will be on the list of many dinners to come!
