External Reviews for J. Rochioli Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Barrel Select
The 2005 Pinot Noir Estate offers delicious raspberry and black cherry fruit along with a hint of flowers, and crisp underlying acidity to buttress the beautiful texture and rich, heady mouthfeel. There are 4,000 cases of this cuvee, which was aged in one-third new Francois Freres barrels. Tom Rochioli told me considerable crop-thinning had to be done in 2005 to keep the Pinot Noir yields manageable. A blend of Dijon Clones 115 and 777 in addition to some of the old Pommard Clone, this stunning effort is the finest regular Pinot Noir Rochioli has yet produced. Drink it over the next 7-10 years.
The lush, opulent, full-bodied 2004 Pinot Noir Estate reveals dense plum, sweet cherry, and pomegranate characteristics interwoven with spice box. This intense, but light-on-its-feet, sexy Pinot should be consumed during its first 4-5 years of life.

The 2009 Pinot Noir Estate exhibits copious cherry aromas intermixed with hints of root vegetables and spring flowers. It is a soft, round, generous, pure, strikingly seductive Pinot Noir to drink over the next 5andndash;6 years.
A classy effort, well-structured and easy-drinking, with complex black cherry, vanilla, currant and forest floor notes. The tannins on the finish are firm and tight, letting the fruit shine through on the finish. Drink now through 2009.
From the initial scent, there's a dark cherry richness that fills this wine with fleshiness and lasts. It's an oak-enriched fruit, with lashings of tannin across all that cherry meat in the end, a full-bore Russian River Valley style, aggressive in its youth. Give it several years to mellow and grow complex.
