Roco Pinot Noir Clawson Creek Vineyard

Roco Pinot Noir Clawson Creek Vineyard

Dark in color, a brooding basket of pomegranate, black cherry and earthiness in the nose. The front palate is spice-driven with potent dark black fruit and delicate grippy tannins. It has zippy acid with pomegranate extract, black cherry and a velvety finish.

Winery/Brewery Info

The creation of ROCO wines is the result of twenty years of dreaming, research, and planning. In 1987, the same year Rollin Soles began to develop the prestigious Argyle Winery, he also purchased a unique hillside property in the Chehalem Mountain Range.

It was not until 2001 that Rollin and Corby Soles planted the hillside to Pinot Noir, and in 2003 produced their first Private Stash Pinot Noir. The result is a vineyard and wines that reflect the very best distillation of Rollin’s 30 years in Oregon viticulture and the property’s special characteristics. By 2009 the Soles built their own winery and added a tasting room in 2012. Rollin resigned his full time position at Argyle in early 2013 and began to focus his full attention on ROCO. Rollin remains as Argyle chief consulting winemaker.

The Soles’ small Wits’ End Vineyard is situated on the southern slopes of the Chehalem Mountain Range, approximately six miles from the small town of Newberg in Yamhill County. The site is superbly located. In the winter the Chehalem Mountains protect the vineyard from the northeast Arctic winds, and in the summer the Dundee Hills (to the south) transition the Pacific Ocean winds into gentle afternoon breezes.
