J. Rochioli Pinot Noir Russian River Valley 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

With three generations of dedication to the land, Rochioli Vineyards and Winery has earned the reputation as one of Sonoma County's finest wineries. This family legacy began in 1938, when Joe Rochioli Sr. purchased land he had long farmed. He had the foresight to know that the soil of the Russian River Valley would one day produce some of the world's greatest wines. His son Joe Jr. embraced this vision and today craft renowned, terrior-driven wines built on a foundation of superb fruit. The result has been a decades-long tradition of outstanding vintages: Silky-smooth, fruit-forward Pinot Noirs; rich, opulent Chardonnays; and tangy, food-friendly Sauvignon Blancs. Always in demand, always revered and always rated among the best varietals to be sought anywhere in the world. This commitment to quality is unwavering and our promise to everyone who uncorks a bottle of our wine. Read less

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
