The Roland Green Pinot Noir is wine that posseses great depth, texture and clarity and has savory notes of pine and orange peel while maintaining tension and precision.
Pale to medium ruby-purple in color, the 2014 Pinot Noir Roland Green has a lovely fragrance of violets, red cherries and wild strawberries with hints of fallen leaves, mossy bark and cinnamon stick. Medium-bodied, there's some wonderful truffle notes contributing a savory character in the mouth with silky tannins and a long, earthy finish.
This new cuvée, from a site planted in 1989, showcases detailed and pinpointed raspberry fruit flavors atop a solid base of mineral (wet stone). It's sleek and compact, young and showing exceptional length. It's definitely built to age. Drink now through 2032. - Wine Enthusiast
