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.

Deep red in color.

There is a black cherry jam nose intermixed with earth, smoke, violets and vanilla.

The wine is full-bodied, long and silky with flavors of black cherry and vanilla.
