Winemaker's Notes

The grapes for this Pinot Noir were selected from Rochioli's many different vineyard sites. The wine possesses the typical Rochioli character and classic Russian River Valley charm. It displays full body and a silky texture finish with a firm and balanced structure. The blend is 70% Sweetwater vineyard, 8% Little Hill vineyard and 22% from different vineyards on Rochioli's property.

Color: Deep red

Aroma: Black cherry jam nose intermixed with earth, smoke, violets and vanilla.

Taste: Full bodied, long and silky with flavors of black cherry and vanilla.

"Shows aromas of floral, cherry, wild berry and raspberry fruit. Compact and delicate on the palate, ending with an earthen floor and mushroom note that adds complexity."

Fine-grained and silky, with bright red berry flavors, good depth and a refreshing mineral quality on the finish. The suave texture and sweet red fruits reminded me of Volnay, as did the lush, harmonious tannins."
-International Wine Cellar
