Winemaker's Notes:

This vineyard was planted in 1970 and is now the oldest Pinot Noir planting on our property. Black cherries, vanilla, anise, and smoke in the nose with rich cherry and vanilla flavors that are full and balanced by the soft tannins and firm acidity. This is a very concentrated wine.
My Notes:

About Rochiolli:

The Rochioli family has been growing grapes on its 136-acre ranch since the 1930s. In 1984, Tom Rochioli created the first wines to be produced under the Rochioli name. The 9000 case winery produces Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir.
