J. Rochioli Pinot Noir Russian River Valley 2008
The grapes for the 2008 Estate Pinot Noir were selected from our many different vineyard sites. The blend is seventy-two percent from the Sweetwater Vineyard and twenty-eight percent from different sites on our property. The wine possesses the typical Rochioli character and classic Russian River Valley charm. Aged in French oak for 15 months, it displays a full body and silky texture finish with a firm and balanced structure.
Light nose, but swirling opens it up nicely. Full bodied and a silky texture and balanced structure. Delicate flavors all in harmony with one another. Black cherry jam on the nose with earth, smoke, tea, violets and vanilla. - Tasted at winery 4/21/10
