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
