Was 07 as good for Oregon as it was for Cali? I’m curious why the steep discount on the Roserock one compared to the other wines offered?

Also, EVERY time I see your label I get the James Bond theme stuck in my head all day. So thanks for that.

According to CT reviews the '07 Roserock has the edge on the '08. Vintage ratings are really just semi-vague generalizations for any given AVA. Every AVA has spots with their own micro climates that will cultivate grapes differently. Went in for a whole case of the Roserock :slight_smile:

I have heard it called the [filter] 07 vintage…that being said there are many very elegant wines that came from 07.

Ok folks, I’m in on the IH Brut Rose, so I need to decide whether any of this shall be mine today. If anybody has tasting notes, or even general thoughts about the winery, please share!

Ditto this, with particular focus on the Chardonnay (I need to get more whites in the cellar).

I’ve bought most of the previous offers of Expression, and was in their wine club for a while before having to drop it for cost reasons.

I’m not hugely enamoured with the Chardonnay, which is good, but bigger than I like in a Chardonnay. There are probably people who will love it, but I’m not one of them.

The Pinot, though, is wonderful - I’ve drunk several vintages now, and the 2007 is right in the sweet spot of what’s good. It’s my go-to Pinot Noir - a complex, earthy number that goes over well with both the red wine drinkers and the “I don’t like reds” crowd.

Wait. The check I need to buy this didn’t arrive in the mail yet. And this could theoretically sell out.


I love Expression, and am currently in their wine club (which reminds me, I need to check for that tracking number, a shipment was supposed to go out last week). Which also reminds me, I better drink a few bottles, or there won’t be room for the new ones. :smiley:

I agree with your comments on the chards. I find them to be very oaky, but they are growing on me. I tend to like whites I can drink anytime; just hanging out on the deck, sipping wine. These, I feel, need to be paired with something.

The Pinot’s, however, are my absolute favorites. I’m particularly fond of the Zena Crown and Roserock, but they are all fabulous. Haven’t had a bad one yet. I find them to be fuller than other Pinot’s I’ve tried. We’ve had them with everything, from pizza to steak to pot roast.

I highly recommend buying them. They are awesome!
