Rose & Arrow Highland Close 1st Expression Pinot Noir 2016 (750ML)
93+ Points, Erin Brooks, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is one of Rose & Arrow's "1st expression" bottlings, denoted with a "1st" on the label. Fruit comes from the Highland Close site, located at 450 feet in elevation and planted on black, red (oxidized) and white (volcanic ash) basalt. Medium ruby in color, the 2016 Pinot Noir Chehalem Highlands-Highlands Close opens with tarry/sulfury reduction, giving way with aeration to black fruits with notes of exotic spices, dried flowers, mossy bark and forest floor. Medium-bodied, it fills the mouth with warm black cherries and crushed blueberries flavors with notes of licorice, lilac and sage and a strong line of crushed rock minerality and earthy layers. It's framed with fine, grainy tannins and good freshness, finishing long and packed with fruit. Those reductive aromas dissipated a day after the bottle was opened. 346 cases produced." 11/18
93 Points, Tim Fish, Wine Spectator: "Distinctive yet refined, offering expressive aromas of raspberry and spice, with a whiff of bacon fat that opens to complex and well-built cherry and sweet anise flavors. Drink now through 2025. 346 cases made." 12/18
