There are 2898 cases of the 2003 Pinot Noir Estate, which sees about 40-60% new oak. Its deep ruby color is accompanied by a perfumed bouquet of plums, black cherries, raspberries, and smoke as well as a floral, mineral-laced, medium-bodied, ripe finish. This beauty is one of the finest estate Pinots Rochioli has yet produced. It should drink well for 5-6 years.
