External Reviews for J. Rochioli Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Barrel Select
A Pinot Noir wine from California in USA. 2009 Rochioli, J Pinot Noir Russian River Valley 750ml
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.
Openly fruity, with plum, black cherry, mineral and spice notes that show a touch of cedar. Medium- to full-bodied, retaining its delicate profile. Drink now through 2017.
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 5-6 years. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Pinot Noir wine from California in USA. 2009 Rochioli, J Pinot Noir Russian River Valley 750ml
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.
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.
