Rochioli Estate Pinot Noir 2009
Openly fruity, with plum, black cherry, mineral and spice notes that show a touch of cedar. Medium- to full-bodied, retaining its delicate profile. Drink now through 2017.
This is Rochioli's basic Pinot Noir. It's a beautiful wine, marked by great structure and accessible fruit. Near-perfect acids and tannins lend it elegance, while the cherry and cola flavors have a rich touch of smoky oak.
Bright ruby. Powerful black raspberry and cherry pit aromas are complicated by sexy oak spices and a hint of mocha. Lush and round, with dark berry and candied licorice flavors enlivened by tangy acids and firmed by dusty, fine-grained tannins. Finishes sweet and very long, with a silky texture and smoky floral and herbal notes.
