Roessler Pinot Noir Anderson Valley Bluejay 2007
Our 2007 Bluejay Pinot Noir starts off with a deep nose of dark fruit and sweet oak which continues as it opens to include earthy qualities of forest floor and mushroom. The mouthfeel is textured with rich tannins, and while the palate is much redder in fruit character than the nose, there is still a good blend of dark and red fruit. Mushroom, chocolate, smoke, and spice layer the palate, bringing a complex balance of fruit, earth, and structure through a long, textured finish.
Editorial Reviews for Roessler Pinot Noir Anderson Valley Bluejay
The fruity nose is slightly confected with very sweet smelling blueberry fruit and gentle hints of spice and soil. This is like a junior fruit bomb. Packed with sweet fruit yet balanced by juicy acidity. Fruity through the medium length finish that's a touch sweet. This could use a bit more depth and complexity but is an approachable, popularly styled wine. 88pts
Poultry spices and rotting meat on the mouth, apple sauce, cinnamon, and a sweet rancidity.
Strange potato peelings and black jam on the nose. Some dark soil with a pretty floral nose and some blueberry to boot. The finish was a touch hot.
