Roserock by Drouhin Zephirine Pinot Noir 2021 is a beautifully crafted wine that has been created from the finest barrels of Pinot Noir. This elegant wine is named after the famous “Zéphirine Drouhin” variety of thornless climbing rose that was introduced in 1868, and like its namesake, this Pinot Noir has an alluring fragrance that will tantalize your senses. It has a dark ruby color with an enchanting perfume of roses, violets, strawberries, and cacao.

This wine is a true representation of the unique terroir of the Roserock vineyard, which is located in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA of Willamette Valley, Oregon.

The result is a wine that is both powerful and refined, with a harmonious balance of fruit, tannins, and acidity.
