Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The stunning 2000 Pinot Noir River Block Vineyard (200 cases) is reminiscent of a grand cru from Burgundy's Cote de Nuits. Aromas of flowers, black cherry liqueur, raspberries, plums, and a touch of blackberries jump from the glass of this dense, deep ruby/purple-colored Pinot. Like all the 2000s, it possesses vibrant acidity, outstanding purity, a layered texture, and a firm but persuasive, fruity finish.

Rochioli, California
Rochioli Joe Jr. and Tom Rocchioli Winery Image

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.

A standout region for its decidedly Californian take on Burgundian varieties, the Russian River Valley is named for the eponymous river that flows through it. While there are warm pockets of the AVA, it is mostly a cool-climate growing region thanks to breezes and fog from the nearby Pacific Ocean.

Chardonnay and Pinot Noir reign supreme in Russian River, with the best examples demonstrating a unique combination of richness and restraint. The cool weather makes Russian River an ideal AVA for sparkling wine production, utilizing the aforementioned varieties. Zinfandel also performs exceptionally well here. Within the Russian River Valley lie the smaller appellations of Chalk Hill and Green Valley. The former, farther from the ocean, is relatively warm, with a focus on red and white Bordeaux varieties. The latter is the coolest, foggiest parcel of the Russian River Valley and is responsible for outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
