Product Overview

The 2017 ROAR Rosella's Vineyard Pinot Noir is rich with ripe berry fruit and blackberry jam, enveloped in leather with a lift of cream and violet soap. The textured palate unfolds over time with notes of blackberry, rich hybrid tea rose, cherry syrup, and cherry cream, nuanced by light clove overtones and sweet wood shavings, all coalescing on a long, structured, finish of cola, oak and red licorice.

Varietal Composition: 100 percent Pinot Noir
Appellation: Santa Lucia Highlands AVA
Winemaker: Scott Shapley

94 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"Lighter in the glass, this bottling is a somewhat more delicate style than usual for the Franscioni family, but just as delicious if not more so depending on preference. Aromas of raspberry, pomegranate and wild thyme lead into a palate that's loaded with strawberry, white pepper and bay leaf, finishing on vanilla cream." -MK, 7/1/19

94 Points - Wine Advocate
"Brilliant red. Vibrant, mineral-accented red berry liqueur and floral oil scents pick up exotic spice and succulent herb nuances with air. Juicy and expansive on the palate, offering seamless raspberry, cherry preserve, rose pastille and spicecake flavors that deepen and turn sweeter on the back half. Closes extremely long and floral, with resonating red fruit and spice character and harmonious tannins that lend subtle grip." -JR, Nov/2019

92 Points - Wine Spectator
"Contoured, featuring lilting flavors of dried raspberry, cherry and underbrush, supported by medium-grained tannins. Beefy notes emerge midpalate, leading to a silky, well-spiced finish. Drink now through 2024. 710 cases made." -KM, 8/31/19
