Notes from the Winemaker:
Our final Rosella's Vineyard Pinot Noir is our 2014. When August West started in 2002, we produced only one wine, and that was Rosella's Pinot. We've been lucky to have worked with Rosella's for 13 vintages, it's quite a vineyard.

The 2014 August West Rosella's Pinot is made up of two clones, Dijon 113 and the Pisoni selection. We harvested the 113 on September 3, the earliest ever for us at Rosella's. The Pisoni came in two weeks later on September 16, so not only was it the earliest we ever started the Pinot harvest, it's also the earliest we ever finished it at Rosella's.

Similar in style to the 2010 Rosella's Pinot, the 2014 will be one that not only drinks well early, it is also a candidate for drinking in the long-term. We recommend drinking this anytime between 2016 and 2024.

Ratings & Reviews

93 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"Bright ruby-red. High-pitched, mineral-accented cherry and raspberry scents show excellent clarity and pick up a hint of Asian spices with air. Silky, seamless and focused on the palate, offering lively red fruit, floral pastille and spicecake flavors that show a suave blend of power and vivacity. A bitter suggestion of blood orange adds bite to the gently tannic finish, which clings with serious tenacity and lingering spiciness." - Josh Raynolds (Oct 2016)

89 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Rosella's Vineyard excelled in this drought year and the 2014 Pinot Noir Rosella's Vineyard from August West is a supple, sexy wine that offers lots of framboise, dried strawberry and spice, with the textbook freshness and purity of the site showing more on the palate. It's another high quality, forward and charming wine from this estate." - Jeb Dunnuck (28th Sep 2016)

Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Offers a racy serving of plump blueberry and wild berry flavors, shaded by light cedary oak. Dry tealike tannins show on the finish. Drink now. 219 cases made." – JL (Jun 15, 2016)
