Pinot Noir. Russian River. Rochioli Vineyards. Healdsburg Californien Usa Red 2007
The #1 rated pinot at my double-blind horizontal 2007 Russian River pinot noir tasting party January 31, 2010. Big, bold, smooth -- one comment: "like liquid sex." Bright cherry/raspberry/berry flavors and nary a hit of bitterness, yet not sweet or jam-like. Gorgeous color. This one bested the 2007 Siduri RR Pinot (which apparently needed more breathing time -- so not sure it got its due).
