    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.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A fragrant, delicate style, with pretty plum, black cherry and wild berry scents that are both rich and elegant. This is sharply focused and displays excellent balance, with a long, persistent finish that reveals extra measures of depth. Drink now through 2012. 3,580 cases made.

    The medium ruby-hued 2006 Pinot Noir Estate possesses soft, strawberry and kirsch-like aromas, abundant sweet berry fruit on the palate, good acidity, and a soft, round style meant to be consumed over the next several years.
    Range: 88-91

    Bright red. Vibrant red berry aromas are complicated by baking spices and minerals, picking up fresh rose with air. Sweet black raspberry and candied cherry flavors offer very good purity and focus, with silky tannins adding grip to the finish. A distinctly fresh and lively style of pinot that is completely fat-free.

    Absolutely wonderful Pinot. Very complex from the smell to the last bits of taste. Typically Sonoma (Russian River), full body fruit bomb but totally smooth. Good for special occasions.
