To me this Pinot represent red fruit, ripe cherry, raspberry and strawberry. It's wonderfully balanced with acididty that makes if a perfect wine for good food such as salmon or lamb. Long, long finish.

Cherry and raspberry flavors, toasty oak, nice acidity, long, dry finish. Was a delicious match for grilled salmon with mushrooms, sweet onions, and red wine sauce.

Winemaker's Notes:

This is some of the most amazing fruit in all of California. The complex mix of grapevine maturity, clone and rootstock selection, microclimate, soils and most certainly the dedication and insight of Joe Rochioli drive the unique quality of these grapes. The fruit is always hand harvested at night to protect the quality and integrity during delivery and processing. Cold soak and open-top tank fermentation took place over a period of ten days. The time required to extract the desired flavor and color without releasing excessive tannins into the wine was carefully monitored. The resulting wine is elegant and seductive, yet rich and complex.

Tasting Notes:

The 2006 Rochioli-Allen Pinot Noir shows aromas of ripe red cherry, porcini mushroom, faint cranberry and red apple. Other aromas include root beer, cola, leather and a forest floor earthiness, along with touches of clove, nutmeg and coriander. Red fruits of cherry, cranberry and alpine strawberry show on the palate, complimented by warm spices, vanilla and sweet pipe tobacco. Medium body and acidity with a slight tannic grip follow, making this a wonderfully balanced wine that pairs beautifully with duck, pork or quail.
