Many roses have reddish new growth which makes identifying rose rosette virus difficult. Judge yours in relation to other canes. One hallmark I kept reading about was the superabundance of thorns on infected canes which isn't apparent on your pictures. But is this very early infection? I found this website had good information and pictures as well as detailed description of signs of infection.
