Domaine Drouhin Oregon Roserock Zephirine 2017 (Rv) Js96 / Rp 94
The Zéphirine displays excuberance and serious aromatic depth. Violets, lilac and primary red fruits come to mind immediately, balanced by a delightful mouthfeel. The layered palate presents complex flavours of cassis and red berry bramble, which fold nicely into each other. There is great freshness, soft, silky tannins and a persistent long finish. Over the course of a few hours, the mouthweight deepens and the finish becomes even longer.
Zephirine Pinot Noir is a selection of the best barrels from the Roserock vineyard. Pale to medium ruby purple, it's scented of crushed boysenberries, blackberries, cranberries, bergamot and forest floor with touches of dried rose petals and violets. Medium bodied and uber silky, it offers great intensity and flavour layers, grainy and fresh with a long layered finish.
