Joe Rochioli grows some of the most amazing and highly sought after fruit in all of California. Credit the complex mix of grapevine maturity, clones, rootstocks, microclimates, soils and most certainly Joe’s insight for the amazing quality. Harvest occurred during the cool, early morning hours to protect the quality and integrity of the fruit during delivery and processing. Cold soak and open-top tank fermentation took place over a period of twelve days … the time required to extract the desired flavor and color without releasing excessive tannins into the wine. The resulting wine is elegant and seductive, yet rich and complex.
The 2007 Rochioli Pinot Noir exhibits ripe strawberry and cherry aromas, leading to a faint red currant and cranberry character. Balanced oak compliments the fruit with mushroom, truffle, and earth. The flavors mimic the nose with additional vanilla and wet stone notes. Ripe, polished tannins support a seamless, velvety texture, which finishes with mouth-watering acidity. Hold this elegant and graceful treat, conservatively, for another six years. This expansive Pinot Noir is wonderfully paired with Lamb Shish Kabobs.
