Winemaker's Notes:

The aromas suggest rich earth, essence of oranges, pie cherries and with a purity of delicates spices. The mouth is bright with delectable red currants, bergamot, lively raspberry fruit flavors, with a hint of white pepper with a creamy texture. Refreshing in the mouth with great length of raspberries and gravel in the finish.
My Notes:

About Roco:

Rollin and Corby Soles planted their small Wits' End Vineyard, located on the southwest slope of the Chehalem Mountains, in 2001. Two years later they produced their first vintage, four barrels of the 2003 Private Stash Pinot Noir. They were so delighted with the wine that they decided to produce two separate ROCO Pinot Noirs each vintage: the Private Stash and Willamette Valley Pinot Noir. Rollin brings more than twenty years of Oregon winemaking experience, a passion for Pinot Noir and insistence on the highest winemaking standards to this private family venture.
