We call Domaine du Docteur Rodgers (DDR) our “rich, luscious Pinot Noir with a unique bouquet.” The following tasting note is from the first sommelier to hold both the Master of Wine and Master Sommelier titles, Ronn Wiegand: “Excellent Quality (****+) – The aroma is intense and relatively open, displaying complex, distinctive character (cassis, cherry, bay leaf, mint, cedar, oak). The palate is youthful and vibrant; it is full-bodied, moderately intense, and crisp, with a very long flavor evolution, and a brisk, long, mildly tannic finish.” Decant an hour before drinking to enjoy to its fullest potential. Likely to be at optimal drinkability between 2024 and 2028.
