Winemaker Notes

This wine is a blend from our estate vineyards. It is a fine example of the unique characteristics from our property, and the Russian River Valley. Aromas of ripe apple, apricot, vanilla, and a touch of spice combine with the rich apple flavors and crisp acidity.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
W&S 93
Wine & Spirits
Hidden within its oak, there's a clean, fresh intensity to this wine that shows in the lasting flavor. Decant this if you open it now, allowing the oak to transform into a toasted hazelnut scent, itself melting into the succulent pear and apple raciness of the wine. The light green-apple color and impressive depth of flavor suggest long development ahead in the cellar.
WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
This isn't a long-term ager, but do give it about a year in the bottle to let all of its parts meld together. Right now, it’s tight and oaky. It features intense, bright pineapple, green apple and orange flavors, with sweet barrel influences and a tenuous streak of acidity.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Shows the traits of a young, just-bottled wine, displaying heavy, leesy, toasty oak and malolactic richness, with fig, smoke and apricot notes. Straightens out on the finish.

Image of winery

The Rochioli family has been growing grapes on its 136-acre ranch since the 1930s. In 1987, Tom Rochioli created the first Rochioli Estate Pinot Noir which Wine Spectator named “The Best Pinot Noir in America.” The Rochioli Vineyard is situated in a very diverse part of the Russian River Valley promoting diversity in the soil types, proximity to the ocean, as well as the contours of the valley, allowing for morning fog and cool evening breezes.
