RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
External Reviews for J. Rochioli Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Barrel Select
Marked by leathery, beefy, dry leaf flavors. It veers into spicy cherry and anise notes, gaining complexity and depth, though it's a tad green and lacks fruit purity. Drink now through 2005.
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.
Shows aromas of floral, cherry, wild berry and raspberry fruit. Compact and delicate on the palate, ending with an earthen floor and mushroom note that adds complexity. Drink now through 2010.
The medium ruby-colored 2000 Pinot Noir Estate exhibits a sweet perfume of dusty cherries intermixed with plum, loamy soil, and mineral notes. Medium-bodied and impeccably clean, with excellent length as well as ripeness, and enough acidity to provide definition and uplift, it will drink well for 4-5 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.
For many wineries, this would be their top Pinot. For Rochioli, it's their basic bottling. Shows ripe cherry pie, root beer, cola, tea, spice and what Michael Broadbent used to call beetroot flavors, yet is delicate and silky, almost weightless. Drink this yummy wine now.
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.
